I fiddled with those -- no go. Also, I'm pretty sure that the settings in IE are all default as I never use it except to check problem websites.

Also thought it might have something to do with my ISP, so I disconnected my laptop from Time-Warner/Roadrunner and connected with Verizon Wireless 4G -- that didn't help, either.

The inability of users to see the edit and delete buttons is apparently a known problem with this software. Google "cannot see buttons in phpbb."

And check this thread on the phpbb bulletin board: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=2138523

Fixed it! Found the answer in a post on the phpbb user forum.

The secret? In User Control Panel, Board Preferences, I switched my language preference from from "English (United States)" to "British English."

Seems likely to me that it's a programming error.

Excellent work Doug. I tried searching the bb forum about this and I couldn't find anything. Sorry that this gave you and Rookie so much trouble.

Well...

I set the default language to British English when I set the forum up.

Sorry guys :D

I'm a journalist by education and was taught British English. When I first called Tom and Ken, they could hardly understand anything I said because of my accent. I've become a lot more "American" over time :D
