    Is there a way to edit something you've posted after it's posted? like if there's a spelling mistake? If so, I can't figure it out.
    Thanks

    Yeah there is an edit tab that is at the bottom of the post you have made.

    I swear I don't see any way to edit. I wonder if it's because I'm on a Mac and using Chrome.

    I am using a Mac and Chrome the edit feature should be closer to your avatar where it says when the post was made. Report should be right beside it. Hopefully this help you to find it.

    I'm going to post this, then take a screen shot of it, and then post THAT, so you can see the edit button that everyone is talking about. So hang on. :)

    OK here you go.

    I'm on a Mac too just by the way. See at the bottom of my post, there are 4 blue tabs, 2 on the left and 2 on the right? Edit Report on the left, and Quote Quick Quote on the right. Click on the Edit button, and that will take you to a window that will allow you to edit your post.

    Hope the visual helps. I'm a very visual person myself, and I know how much images help me when I can't figure something out.

    Hi seawitch, you eyes do not deceive you. I have included a spam prevention mechanism that hides the Edit link for new members with less than 20 posts. This is because some new members would join, post one post without a spam link and then edit it after a few days to add the spam link.
    Once you reach 20 posts the Edit link should appear for you. Please let me know if it doesn't ok :like:

    Thanks everyone. Frank, you're right. That's why I'm not seeing it. Looks like I'm not totally crazy after all. Phew! What a relief! I was just thinking that I had better be extra careful because I can't edit. Some day I'll get my button. :)
