    Default Edit Post?

    I'm unable to use Edit Post on the forums; when I click it, it just spins around trying to access it but never changes the page. Its very frustrating as I tend to be a very iterative poster

    Is that something that's happening to everyone, or are most people able to edit posts? I guess I chalked it up to continued new-forum shenanigans, but just realized that maybe its just me, and there might be something I can change and fix it..?

    edit: woohoo, workaround

    Been that way for me since the forum "upgrade".
    If this isn't typical, I'd be interested to learn that as well.

    I've saw a problem where the forum actually logs you out, but doesn't refresh the header so you can still see the My Account and Log Out (yourname) at the top.

    You can either press F5 to refresh the screen before you try and edit anything, or what I've started doing is opening another tab and checking if I'm logged in and logging in there first if I've been disconnected. Reason for doing this that when I then press F5 on the original tab, I don't get redirected to the login prompt and then to the forum home page, it will keep me where I was last.

    I can edit my posts to my heart's content, and frequently take advantage of this feature.

    I have to use the "right click" on the Edit post button and open in a new tab or window...

    Ok, so it does work then.
