    There is a window of only a few days for editing, after which the ability to so disappears.

    If you have just made a post and still don't get the Edit option, that's another story entirely.

    The problem is only on those I posted 48+ hours ago or so. Edit option works fine otherwise.

    Thanks for your prompt response.

    No problem.

    Looks like you get around two days to edit then. Wasn't sure of what the time limit is.

    Its 24 hours.

    Many times ive tried to go back and correct technical errors in my posts and have been unable to do so. It was not always so at WAB. This is a change that happened after the time period of Sniper's 1st exodus.

    That's the problem I am facing. For instance, I posted a comment on the jokes thread. Then I wanted to explain in that same post why I made that comment. But since edit option is not working even for 1 second, I had to post second reply to that thread.

    We've not had full functionality on the board for quite some time. We've been trying to correct this but our hands are pretty much tied. I have no idea if that situation will change or not.

    Your best bet is to do exactly what you do, post a second reply.
