    There seems to be a 20 minute time limit for edits

    You use the "Edit" button on the left side below the post.. But with this new forum, there is a time limit on how long you have to be able to make the edit. Once that time limit is past, you will not be able to edit it.

    Why is there a time limit for editing posts ? I frequently edit my posts and now I'm unable to.

    It's the way the new software works...and Webby (the owner) increased it a few minutes...but wants it that way.

    Since we can't edit posts I now usually read my posts twice before posting

    If you click that small spanner in the top right you can preview the post and also add in spaces between lines so the post is nice and clear

    Anyway why should you need to edit posts? Get it right first time it's good practice ;)

    Oh fiddlesticks..I'm not back..but test bd is. I'm just checking the functionality of this forum.

    What's this about no edit button..I'm using it right now and I'm no longer a mod.
