Can someone address the topic of editing a post? I've seen the topic in the "Board issues" section on how to edit a post... but it doesn't work (for me).

(Help!)

Click on Reply, then in the address bar of your browser, you'll see a url like this:

http://theoildrop.server101.com/forums/n...part=1&vc=1

See the part that says newreply.php? Change that to editpost.php, leaving everything else the same then hit enter.

Edited just like that!

BITOG'ers don't make mistakes, they are always right ... the "edit" feature was deemed useless.

My pencils don't require erasers either...

I can't believe I'm unable to figure this out. OK, here's how I understand how this incredibly simple yet mystifying procedure works:

(1) Create a post and submit it.
(2) Notice something with your post you want to change/edit.
(3) Click "Reply" on your own post.
(4) In the URL field, replace "newreply.php" with "editpost.php".
(5) Type newly edited post into post field. Add smilies and graemlins as needed.
(6) Click "continue" at bottom of page.
(7) Enjoy edited post.

What am I missing? I've tried this maybe 10 times and it's never worked for me.

I think where you went haywire is in step (5)

You should see your whole old post in either a new tab or same window depending on how your browser is configured. Make your changes and hit "change this post" then "continue" (if your have preview selected)
