Still Unable to Edit Posts

Wed Jun 13, 2012 4:45 pm

Although it says at the bottom of each form that I can edit my posts on that forum, there's still no apparent way to do so.

MadRookie posted about this a few weeks ago -- the last post in that thread was on May 31, now two weeks ago.

Is there any estimate as to when this important feature will be fixed?

BTW, thinking this might be a Firefox issue, I tried in Internet Explorer, too -- same problem.

Hi Doug,

It seems to work with some users and not others. Several of our guys have looked at it and no one has figured out how to fix it.

If it were my forum, I'd consider changing software -- it's THAT important.

For some users it was an easy fix, others are horrible. I'm away for a few days, but when I get back on track I'll look into it again.

phpBB is by far the most used forum software, and imo the easiest. Wouldn't want to change it unless absolutely necessary. Which I don't think is the case at the moment.

I changed your permissions. log off and log on again and see if you can alter a new post please.

This is a new post. I'll post it, then see if I can edit it.

Nope. I posted a new message, but couldn't edit it. I the logged off and back on for good measure, but still no editing option (or at least I can't find it).

Frustrating.

Hi RDCollins:

The Edit button, as well as the other buttons are there on the top right - see my picture - they are just not visible for some or other reason.

Just hover your cursor in the vicinity of the RED elipse and you will get the Edit option, or any of the other buttons.

Mine works like this as well.

Oh dear God...

I've been flipping out about this issue and it's just invisible for some reason, but it's there? Ugh...
