• Welcome to this new upgrade of the site. We are now on a totally different software platform. Many things will be different, and bugs are expected. Certain areas (like downloads and reviews) will take longer to import. As always, please use the Meta Forum for site queries or bug reports. Note that we (the mods and admins) are also learning the new software.

Edit a post?

Am I missing it somewhere? I dont see a way to edit a post after its been posted. In case of typ0s and the like.

I'm seeing three buttons in the lower left-hand corner of each post I make: Report, Edit, Delete.

Actually, they're more just like link text, rather than actual buttons. That could be causing some confusion.

Okay. Please tell us the OS and browser you are using.

If possible, give us a screenshot of your post, so we can see what you see.

There may be a pull down menu. On Mobil it like you is like three dots next to a downward pointing triangle
For other readers - in any window that is very narrow (mobile or otherwise) the options you normally see along the bottom of a post may collapse into a drop-down menu to save space.

Just also checked with Chromium Browser and Google Chrome. No difference there either. Also disabled adblocker with no change.

If you have access to the app, this works exactly like before:

Select a post (by touching it) and then choose the crossed tools (wrench and screwdriver) in the upper menu bar. This opens a menu where you can choose Edit.

Cheers

Edit: this post edited just as proof of concept
