Editing & Deleting
« on: Saturday 23 September 06 19:22 BST (UK) »
Anyone know the vagaries of these functions ?

Sometimes you can delete, sometimes you cant - and it doesnt seem dependant on other later postings ..

EDIT - sometimes you see a footnote in Italics noting when and who last editted .... sometimes you dont ..

Is there a reason ?

Thanks in anticipation...

I know that you can't delete a thread unless you started it, and that you cannot delete a thread that you started once someone has replied to it.  (If you feel you need to, just ask a Mod and we will do our best to help).

I am still learning about Editing - I am not sure myself when the footnote comes into play & when it doesn't!  I expect B-Bob knows!

kind regards, Arranroots  ;)

Well I can delete it, but that wouldn't answer your question.

True ..... and it makes sense that a populated thread cant be deleted - but then the delete button shouldnt be displayed in a perfect world   :D


Right, lets wait for a developer to comment on the EDIT business ...

Much obliged to you Marm ....

You can only delete a post if its the LAST one on that thread.
Once someone else has replied, then you can only modify or edit your posts.

Hope that helps. :)
