The edit button is in the lower right of your post. As for deleting, I don't know how to do that without the moderation menu.

Registered users should be able to delete their own post from the same menu.

Edit and DELETE

Postby TAR-p40 » Mon Feb 26, 2007 4:06 pm

The rules say you can EDIT your own post, yet i am unable to do this maybe i am looking at the wrong window but in the lower right i have on;y three buttons. Quote, multi -quote and quick reply .in a posted window.
After it is posted how can i edit my own Post ?

In the quick reply on the upper right that says "switch to Editor Mode / Is this what you are talking about.

Before I was a moderator I remember that next to the Quote Button on MY posts I had an edit button of which I could edit until someone replied to my post. Unless the permissions have changed I believe you can still edit your own posts until there is a reply made to them.

I see an "Edit" button on my post. Are you sure you are logged in? Perhaps you are just in guest mode.

As for deleting, once you click "edit" there is a "Delete" button in there.

I decided that this had drifted enough off topic and moved it to this thread for discussion about how to use the Forums.

I don't know if I am allowed one of those. I think Tomw has one and he keeps track of what can or cannot be done with that.
