    What happened to the "edit" link on recent posts?

    I WISH I were perfect, but I sometimes find that I need to go back and correct an obvious error and just found that there was no "edit" button for a recent post! :eek:

    I don't recall ever seeing one. It always throws me when I see these "post edited by blah for blah reason" and I wonder how they did it.

    Are you talking about a button or the "last edited" info in a post? I can do either and am not sure if you can make changes in the moderator panel too.

    F'rinstance, irish's post above: "Last edited by irish223; Today at 12:27 PM. Reason: add info." How'd they do that?

    After I post a reply, there are 3 buttons at the bottom of the post:

    Edit
    Quote
    Quick Reply

    Apparently, some people don't have the edit button. :confused:

    Nope!

    I get only:

    "Quote"
    "Quick Reply"

    ... and that's it.

    I'm thinking that "edit" only exists for Moderators at the moment.

    Could be, although I haven't been able to access the moderator controls, so I've assumed that there weren't any other changes.

    OK guys - I'm going to check to make sure that you're all in the right categories and have access to all the important areas. This may have become muddled when I created a new group so that new members couldn't just shoot out emails to everyone here 24/7. I'll have this fixed by tonight. :)

    Thanks for fixing. I have also notcied the edit buttons have disappeared. I have wondered, who is the moderator/webmaster of this site?

    Also you might want to remove "free legal advice from lawyers" since most people on here are not lawyers, and people need to know we are not giving legal advice.

    Good points. I'll be giving you guys moderator capabilities and glad to have help in managing the riffraff, lol.

    I'm about to put up a complete regimented FAQ, a new legal FAQ section, and a bunch more stuff with the new design that has been completed. This will help organize the explanation of moderators, support, etc. into one that is clearly organized.

    OK, everyone should be happy. I realize that the "edit" button defaulted to a low number and I've also provided additional moderator capabilities for those who are and want to moderate. :D Now there should be plenty of time to edit posts. :)

    One more suggestion, can you add a tag to ask people to please name their state? Somany people post and do not tell us where they live.

    Just added the "state" tab in the new thread. I'm working on making this a line that needs to be checked before posting. For now we've got it working.

    I've also discovered some new members posting a lot of hokum too and I'm working on weeding it out as well.

    Curious - I still don't see the Edit button. Down at the bottom of the forum page, it says this:

    You may post new threads
    You may post replies
    You may post attachments
    You may not edit your posts

    I guess I can't complain. Three out of four ain't bad.
