Unable to edit a newly-made post

Post by John Gray »

I seem to have lost any button which would enable me to edit a newly-made post. Any ideas why? Thanx!

Think how stupid the average person is, then realise that half of the population are stupider than that.

Don't you get the pencil button near the top of the post (below its subject)?

Odd - all I had shown initially was the double-quotes button.
How many time can one edit a post? And is there a timeout?
I've just tried to edit one, which worked - but I'm now left with the double-quote button only so I cannot edit it again...

I wonder whether it could be to do with cookies / logon? I've just had to log on again (even though previously I could still post...), and the four buttons have returned.

There might be a constraint on how many times you can edit a post in one minute, or something similar.
