Hi all,

By Mistake, :bigoops: to one of the replies, i meant to write absolute positioning, but wrote relative positioning. when i wanted to edit it, i couldnt see the edit button there. But i did have the option available on the first post of that page... :?

Some issue?

The first post edit button

The first post edit button is up top. The second is down below.

I don't know the reasoning though. :shrug:

Possibly has to do with

Possibly has to do with which comment you replied to? as there is a difference whether you reply to the original post or to a later comment; replying to later comments attaches your comment to that one, comments don't all run off the original post, but why that should affect editing I couldn't be sure.

hi, Yes, i think that is

hi,

Yes, i think that is the problem. Because i seldomly, click on the "Add New Comment" link, and mainly reply to the latest post. I think you pointed out correctly that if you reply to the latest post, you would not be able to edit it. just like in this post. shall i upload an screenshot? (with an arrow?) :rolleyes:

But then why should a problem exist? I think it might be a big problem, cause you might by mistake advice something wrong, and would not be able to edit it. Ofcourse all the others might take a look, notice that the advice is wrong, but the person with the problem will get confused.

Where's CssCr?

Diagnosis, taken a bit

Diagnosis, taken a bit further... i can edit the last post if it is mine. as in, if the last post in the discussion is mine, whether i am replying by any one of the ways i can edit it. If there comes a post after it, i cant edit it... :thumbsup:

To be quite frank open

To be quite frank open editing of posts is not a very clever thing and there should really be a means of closing editing after a certain short time span along with an automatic edit time tamp to show a post has been edited.

This sounds as though it's tied to how comments work, if I try and delete a specific individual comment and which has comments made in reply to it rather than the original post I would delete that comment and all it's child comments.

Catching up on a few things....

I have always understood that you cannot edit a post that someone has "replied" to - i.e. they have pressed reply on that particular post in the thread. Makes sense really. You can edit any post that has not been specifically replied to.

This seems to bear out Hugo's statement -

In fact, I think the edit button disappears if the post has been replied to using the reply button.
