Not sure TofH. I've just zoomed in so that my text is huge and I'm on a tiny laptop but I still have Quote and Modify showing

I definitely do not have a Modify button next to the Quote button.  There's only a Quote button!

In that case I would assume that the post is too 'old' to have one.

I think Hurworth is saying even on this thread there's no Modify button & this thread isn't too old?

I  am on my E reader.

I will press post,  and then log out.

I will then log back in  And see what buttons I have,

I have the modify button to the right of the quote button.  My screen is around 75mm x 75mm or 3 inch x 3 inch.

I recall many years ago a moderator restricted a poster so that they were unable to modify their posts at all, but I don't remember what board ...

Thank you Sarah.  As an admin are you able to check whether my use of the board has been restricted so that I can not modify posts please?  It doesn't appear to be affecting other users.
