Can't edit posts

This is fairly dated software, and after awhile, the edit function goes away on a post--I've forgotten the exact time period. That is, you can edit a post shortly after posting, but if you come back a day later, you will probably be unable to edit the post.

Hopefully, if the software upgrade for the forum ever takes place, this, along with many other things, will be fixed. :)

The edit-time window for a post is one hour. It was set that way because the edit function was being abused by spammers.

If the one hour period has passed and there is something that definitely needs to be modified (the inadvertent display of an IP address, for example), users are advised to contact a moderator and ask for a correction to be made.
