    Just curious... When the forums were migrated over to the new platform, did our ability to edit posts go away? I tried to edit a post a few minutes ago and I was unable to do so on Tapatalk. I opened the Chrome browser on my tablet and there is no option to edit.

    I think there was a time limit on editing posts previously, and probably still is. I think this is a question that only JFB can answer.

    True. I recall the time limit... However, one of the posts I wanted to edit was mere minutes old. Probably something in the master settings lol

    I think the edit window was only 5 or 10 minutes.

    Quint101 at your level (Senior Member), you should have 30min to edit a post. (I'm going to change this to 120min). Give it a try here.
    In which forum category did you try to edit a post? I'll check if that particular category has a conflicting setting.

    You should be able to edit there. What about here? Do you see Edit button below your post signature? I mean not in Tapatalk which may be something different.
