    Editing posts

    Just a quick question, is it possible to edit your posts? I notice at the bottom of threads it says "you may edit your posts" but i can't find a way to do it anywhere. I'm guessing its been disabled?

    Just curious as i do make a lot of spelling mistakes especially when typing code so just wondered if there was a way to fix them.

    There is a time limit where you can edit your post and it will not be shown as edited, then another time limit where you cannot edit it any more.

    I don't know if there is a limit of "you must have X number of posts" or "you must have been a member for X days" or some such, but editing posts is certainly possible.
