    Default Editing / Deleting Posts Question

    I posted something went wrong and now I have lost the post. Is there a way to auto save.

    Also why cant I delete my own thread?

    The question above is not very clear. Can you rephrase?

    I can't edit any of my posts without them disappearing completely. So if I need to change something I copy the whole post, paste to a new post and make the change before submitting.

    Editing a post is a short-term, two-minute-only option, immediately after the post been submitted*.

    Only Forum Moderators can delete threads, or edit posts after that two minute period.


    * Includes a post that initiates a thread.

    Yes - I have that wrong as well as I've worded it badly.

    Within 2 minutes, the "last edited by" tag does not appear. Allows time for a quick-fix of typos or the like.

    I think a poster can edit their own posts within 12 or 24 hours - can't now recall which.

    After that, only a Mod can edit posts and threads. Or remove them.

    If I try to edit a post seconds after posting it, it disappears!

    Perhaps that's something Donna will need to look into, as it does not seem consistent with all PT Forumite posters.

    Hi Learning,

    I will ask the techies re. autosave - we're now on a newer version of VB - I thought we used to have autosave.

    What template are you using? See there are options at the end with a drop down box. The one that shows first is: Shiny blue fluid. There is also the default VB4 template and mobile.

    cheers,

    Donna

    Autosave is [still] working, Donna. I don't recall how frequently it occurs during editing, though.

    It's the disappearance of a post while editing that's odd.
