Can't edit posts?

Discussion in 'Forum Usage Help' started by Tyler Hole, Feb 5, 2005.


  1. I went to go edit one of my posts I posted a few days ago and one from this morning and I noticed there was no edit button on my post...so I went and looked at my other posts...no edit button. So I posted a reply in my own thread (bumping it up) and there was an edit button on the post. Is there something going on where you can't edit a post after a few hours or something? This is really weird...I even tried signing out and back in and nothing changed.

    Thanks,
    Tyler

    Hey Tyler Hole!

    You might wanna check that link when you get a chance. Don't think it goes to your Pilot 5er. dcr
     
  3. Ok...that was odd. Wonder why the link changed? It was the link to the thread for a week+ now...and I just noticed I can't edit my original post in this thread now nor the one I made in my FS thread. So, anyone know whats goin on here?

    The reason that you can't edit your posts in the FS forum is because you are no longer a Supporting Member. Only Supporting Members can post, and because of that limitation, it prevents you from editing posts that existed when you were a Supporting Member.

  10. I haven't been a SM member for about a week now and had been able to edit posts. And like the others, it's not just in the FS forum.

    I can't edit most of mine, but I can edit the last post I made. Go figure.
     
  12. When I made this thread, I went back and looked at it in about 5 minutes or so and the edit button was gone off the post. This is really quite annoying...

    Yes, now the edit button is gone.... new feature maybe?
     
  14. Sounds like a lame feature :meh: And if it is, what's with no announcement about it?

    I just noticed this no-edit-button thing right after making a statement that all you have to do to delete a thread you've started is delete the original post... but now you can't do that so I feel stupid. haha

    I can't edit either. It does indeed appear to be a new feature. I tried hitting the "back" button on my browser to get back to the "edit" screen on one of my posts, and I recieved a message saying that you can no longer post after 5 minutes.

    I wonder what that's all about?

    Same here. Cannot edit recent posts. Let's see if this one works...

    Edit: I can edit this one.
