I noticed that when trying to edit my growlist today, about a week ago a spammer had come on to spam, i made a smartass reply back and then they deleted their original post which made it look like I had made the spam post (auto-bumped me to the top as if I made the post) I wonder if something wasnt changed on the backend to fix that, but also by mistake took away our edit our own post ability all together.

that is my "long background with web development" take on it at least bump one thing one way and another pops loose somewhere else haha

Yes it was. I hadn't considered the effect of not being able to edit grow lists. I'll see if I can figure out a way to allow it in that forum, but not in other forums.

Sorry about the delay on this. I'm utterly swamped with work these days.

I've changed the settings so that people can edit again. I'll work on a more permanent solution to achieve the desired effect later.

This seems to be a thing again? I just wrote a post and missed a few typos and it's kind of annoying that I can't go back and fix them - or at least I can't see an edit post option anymore?

I can edit them and then it says it can't load modified post. I reload, then I hit save. Reload the page again and the change is there.

Really? I tried with my account and with Leah's account and we were able to edit posts. However, we are both admins so maybe that makes it so we are able to always edit posts.

Can you PM me your login information and I will test with your account?

If on a computer or other device (not Taptalk), click the little gear icon with the downward arrow next to it in the top right corner of the post and then select "Edit Post". Screenshot attached.

Ohhhh, okay that worked. I thought I tried clicking on it before and nothing happened but it definitely works now. Part of me also saw the down arrow and thought it meant "downvote" XD Thanks Matt.
