Just tried to edit my last post, didn't work.

Whoops, didn't see the rest of your post Gav:

Hardware:  PC

Type of computer: Desktop

Operating System: Linux Lite

Browser: Firefox

Browser version: 65 for Ubuntu Canonical 1.0

I fired up an antique computer to try this (as my regular two won't allow me to edit) and once more, I can't edit. What's more I can't "quote". 

I'm using Opera 52.0,

on Windows 7


Adblocker installed

(coal fired, good head of steam!)

Mine still won't work!

Desktop PC/Windows 7/MS Edge.


The more who report and the more details you can provide, the better. I will be sharing this thread with Ning

Point is, it did work until - well, guessing here - probably about the end of January.

I blame Brexit. :D


The only problems I had seemed to be with the time allowed for edits. I sometimes need to go back a day later and that can't happen here.


Thanks all for responses so far. Timothy, the 15-minute edit time window is normal and can't be changed. To all: I will be sharing this thread with Ning at the end of the week, so if you have anything to share, do it before then please.

Hi Gav,  I can't edit or quote either.

Desktop, Win 7, Firefox 65.0.1

I'm now having another problem. I can't do a quote reply. I have to manually copy the quote. Seems like it could be related.

Thanks all, and in response to Saul: you can't edit replies on your thread, that is normal. The other issue you raise is not normal. All, please keep your responses coming, I will be sharing this thread with Ning at the end of the week - 


^^^ (Apologies for the pointing upward to your post, Gav, but I can't quote either.

I think Saul is saying that if someone starts a thread then people (and perhaps that same original poster) replies, that person can click on "options" next to the add button (to the right beside the user/member name), then clicks on the option "edit the diescussion", that person's original post opens up to be edited. It doesn't have to be within the fifteen minute window. 

I've just done it. I posted some music late this morning. I had one reply but just now (11:22pm).reopened the post by this means and put a few asterisks at the foot. 

I posted a work late this morning
