Edit to add that immediately after posting there is an edit link which I can use, but going back to older posts there is no edit opportunity

Age is unimportant unless you’re a cheese.

The edit tab appears at the top if you were the original poster. Are you not getting an edit tab when you look at a post you created? When you're replying to a post, that's when your edit link/button lives as an option at the bottom of your reply (which you already know ;)).

It is a bit confusing. Since the term "post" can include anything eg. replies, the edit feature you are pointing out has only to do with "forum topics".

Once someone has posted after you, the edit tab is removed, we are confirming now for Robyn.

Thanks, Gretchen. Here's my reply to your reply. I suspect you'll still be able to go back and edit; that's been my experience anyway. Worth a double check, though. . .

And. . .edit is no longer an option for raitken_fcweb. She's not too happy about it either.

On the upside, this bug is not new and is in the works for the Phase I batch of fixes.

Thanks, Gretchen, and everyone else who keeps checking back in with a willingness to test the waters.

That's "different" because no one had replied below you when I did mine--I think. Maybe we posted at the same time?

I can edit this (NOPE) post as the last post in the queue (since we don't seem to have a stable naming for all this).
