    Posting problems

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    A couple of times lately Ive posted and then been unable to modify my post.

    I can post again but not modify.

    Logging out then back in doesnt fix the problem.

    It happened again just a minute ago so this is a test post.

    Weird.

    This one gives me the option to modify.

    http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1218409705/69#69
    does not let me modify it.

    :-? :-? :-? :-?


    EDIT:

    Could it be because the original post was only an image (no text)?

    Ill test that theory with the following post.

    Hi,
    Usually you can modify within a certain amount of time left, perhaps 24 hours, i don;t know, then after that you cant modify it.
    How long after you posted did you attempt to modify?

    OK, just testing this one out now and re posting it after modifying it. Here goes...

    Seems ok to me, I just modified and saved it. This post has been modified twice now. Will attempt to modify again later to see what effects are. Perhaps the mods can enlighten us.

    Yes- you get 24hrs to modify and then the post is permanent so as to maintain the sense in any thread. To modify, you need to return withthe same IP address or log in again. If you cant modify within the 24hr window, try clearing your cache.

    Hope that helps

    Re: Posting problems

    Today i have the same problem as Thundergod.

    I posted a response on best of supermarket beans, exited that page to check other posts, then realised i wanted to modify it all within 20 minutes but i can only see "mark and quote" and "quote"
    So my question is for TG and myself, does "modify" disappear when you leave a page? But i have done that in the past and could return to a page and modify.

    I would like to offer to run a test here if it;s ok with mods.

    Re: Posting problems

    Let me clarify.

    I know about the 24 hour limit.

    The problem occurred immediately after posting.

    Logging off then back on (from the same IP address) did not fix the problem.

    Update:

    The most recent thread in which the problem occurred appears to be the problem (see link in Reply #1 above).

    I just posted in there again and immediately could not modify.
