Do we have the ability to edit posts? I know other XF forums have the option. Was it decided to disable this feature, or am I just not seeing the edit button?
 
Just realized this is actually in ongoing discussion in the To-Do thread. Apologies for the duplication.
 
No matter, Marco. You are not seeing an edit button in your own posts?
Apparently there is a time limit set in order to edit.

I just went to edit one of my posts and of course the edit button is now gone.

Can the time limit be removed? Don't see the reason for this to be honest. ♥️
 
The Edit seems to be there a lot longer now. 24 hours or something like that?
 
I caved. It’s set to unlimited now.
But I will put edit-addicts in a separate group and only give them 5 minutes. So be warned… 👮‍♀️
😅

Go get 'em! There's always "Add New User Group" as your friend.

I'm going to edit this post 100+ times in the next few weeks to see what happens. Setting to "Watch Thread" with post number 9 to remind me. ⌚ 🎗️

EDIT# 5
EDIT # 6 should I really be doing this?
EDIT # 7
EDIT # 8
EDIT # 9 still here.
EDIT # 10
EDIT # 11

Just tried to edit a post of mine from a week ago, but there is no edit button; wanted to add location data to a photo I posted. Some forums require you to have a certain number of posts before you can edit, so was wondering if that applies here? Thanks

We restricted editing time to 24 hours after we had a few people performing mass deletions of their posts and/or images, and in doing so disrupting the flow of threads, removing contexts of replies, etc. Whenever you need to edit a post you are welcome to contact a staff member or report the post you would like to edit.

So, this would be your "Edit-Addict Edict" then? (Try typing that five times really fast!)
:unsure:
