With the new forum, is it possible to edit posts?

On re-reading a couple of my posts, I haven't been as clear as would have liked and can't fine a way to edit.

This seems unusual for these types of boards.

    I believe only up to 6 minutes after you post. But I could be wrong, it’s just an observation

    Kris

    Tried it an it does work, thanks

    Hi @Bruce

    @Kris_Williams is on the money here. At the moment, the platform is set to allow the author of a discussion to edit within 5 minutes of the post going up.

    Its the default setting which I haven't changed but if folks are finding that its too short of a timeframe then I'm more than happy to extend it.

  • BruceBruce Member Posts: 333 ✭✭✭

    Thanks Rav. Not sure that I should need much longer

    @Rav Can it not be made editable without a timeframe???? Sometimes I might realise a typo etc later 😫😬

    @Acctd4 Unfortunately not Shaz 😕, but I've extended the time period to one hour now.

    Unfortunately I am still not getting the delete choice when I click on the cog of an existing post, only an edit

    you could try editing and leaving just a space or a stop. Doesn’t remove the fact that you posted, but the offending comment is removed

  • Kris_WilliamsKris_Williams Member Posts: 1,781 ✭✭✭

    Yes I have done that, only need to delete if someone else has answered the question and I feel that my answer could be misleading

    Select the Edit Cog (within the 1 hour) on the right and leave the page without posting. The post should appear in the My Drafts category selectable from the right pane. Select the X or right of message window and that will delete the post not needed.

  • Kris_WilliamsKris_Williams Member Posts: 1,781 ✭✭✭

    Ok thanks I’ll give that a go

  • RavRav Administrator Posts: 11,749 Community Manager

    Sorry guys!

    I'll need to re-check the permission levels that I've got setup.

    To be honest, I thought the delete option was available but as Kris has pointed out its obviously not. If its ok with everyone here, I'll check out the setup after EOFY traffic dies down a bit as it'll need some tweaking & testing.

    @Kris_Williams if there's a specific comment of yours that you'd like deleted shoot me the link to it and I'll do it for you in the interim. To get the link for a comment as opposed to the whole discussion itself, click on the date on the specific comment which will load the URL for just that comment.

    No I’m ok for now thanks nothing to delete. Yes ok to wait till things die down
