HI there,
Is it possible to edit one's old posts? I have tried to remove links in some of my old posts but can't actually access the post to do so.

Cheers
Andy

Why do you want to edit

Why do you want to edit them? is it to remove links? if so list the posts and one of the moderator team can deal with it for you.

Before you make your first post it is vital that you READ THE POSTING GUIDELINES!

Can't non-moderators edit their own posts?

Oh right, so when someone

Oh right, so when someone messes up posting code, they can't go back and edit it? Cos I'm sure I've told people to do that more than once. :blushing:

It is a shame, doesn't it

It is a shame, doesn't it just pile a lot of extra work onto the Moderators?
I am sure we used to be able to edit the old posts.
The reason I want to edit the posts is to remove links as they are showing up in customers' site stats, and just cause confusion.

Posts requiring link removed.
