    @usamamuneeb, thanks, we're still working on this one. Have you tried other browsers? Different computers? I'm still looking to narrow the problem down... definitely strange. Thanks

    @MatthewGx, so the above two statements are actually not true? And yes, I tried both Firefox and Internet Explorer on Vista. The Edit button does not even appear.

    Well, I can edit posts up to about a day old (I suspect that it's exactly one day but haven't proved it ). Most forum software limits this - the one I maintain allows for 15 minutes

    Now the question is intentional or "unexpected feature"?
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    If the forum software is set to not allow post edits at all after a certain period, I wasn't aware of it. Moderators are able to edit at any point in time, but I'm not sure about regular users and don't have the forum permissions needed to check it.

    Perhaps MatthewGx will post back with some info to clarify.

    @ozar, check if masterrussian.net also uses vBulletin. They allow us to edit our posts any time, there is no time limit. If our topic has 0 replies, then we can delete the thread on our own (regular users). If any post has a reply or replies, we cannot delete the post but can always edit it. What if I have to edit more than one posts, and after a time limit? I cannot make a moderator to do all of it.

    No, they are using phpBB forum software.

    They allow us to edit our posts any time, there is no time limit. If our topic has 0 replies, then we can delete the thread on our own (regular users). If any post has a reply or replies, we cannot delete the post but can always edit it.
    Yes, I thought that was the way our forums were setup, but maybe Matthew can check it. I don't have the forum permissions required to check it, myself.

    From what I can see, here's what we have in our setup:

    The thread title can be edited up to 20 minutes from the post.

    A post can be edited up to a day. After that, it's only editable by moderators.

    Does this clarify things? Sorry it took me so long to get to this. I should have done this long ago.
