    Question Editing a post??

    Hi, I have a question on editing. If a person starts a post and wants to add/change or update that said post, how do you edit it? I was just curious, I started a post, I was able to edit it once after posting it. I wanted to add to it and the edit icon is no longer there. Is this feature no longer available? Thanks for any info..

    As far as I know you can only edit your post for about 20 minutes after posting it. Then it stays as is.
    One damn minute Admiral...

    Agreeing that after it limits out the original post can't be edited.

    What one CAN do that's almost as good is go to the post that needs editing (but is by that time locked) and click the Reply With Quote button on THAT post. This generates a new post with the old post embedded like it is in the post I'm writing now. Then make corrections or edits in separate text hoping readers see the connection.

    As with the regular editing the sooner you upgrade the thread the better.
