Editing Your Posts

Hi gang,
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm ready for a couple of days napping, myself. ;)

I'd like to begin testing a new feature today -- editing posts! We know this has been much-requested, so I'd like to ask for your help in working out any bugs.

To edit your post, once you have loaded the page, look to the right and you'll see an edit link just under the Clippings area. This will open up the post and you'll be able to make your changes - it will be very similar to making changes in the Preview window when you make an original post.

You will not be able to edit your Subject line.

You will only be able to edit posts from the last couple of days going forward.

Once you've change your post, a notation is added to the bottom of the post, showing that it's edited. We will also have a log of the original post.

After I posted this, I just noticed that the html coding will show up in in the edit window. Try and ignore that - I will have them remove it as soon as possible. There also seems to be an issue using the back button.

Give it a shot and let me know what you think!

RE: Editing Your Posts

The first time I edited I removed all the html stuff and nothing changed. The second time I placed my cursor on the word "test" (which was the original comment) and then typed "editing my test post."

So I end up with all that space. Is that the way it will be or is there something else I should've done?

Thanks,
Teresa

MY THOUGHTS:
- the HTML has to go.
- You can get rid of the blank lines by manually deleting all the
codes, but who's going to do that
- Would be nice to be able to delete an image that you've uploaded, as far as I can tell if you upload the wrong image the only way to correct it is to manual edit the HTML code, uploading another image merely appends that second image to the end of the post
- Similar comment on deleting a link you posted

John,

As I said in my post, the HTML coding is a known issue and it will be removed as soon as possible. Still working on the photo and links.

Teresa,

I think that once the coding is gone, you won't have an issue with the blank lines. Let's see what happens once that's done. Thanks!

RE: Editing Your Posts

Neither Clippings nor the Edit feature work for me unless I switch over to using Internet Explorer instead of Firefox. That is too much trouble and I just love being ad-free. Sorry, gang, you are just going to have to put ups with my typos and mishpelling.

RE: Editing Your Posts

Like Pam, I can't edit. I use Firefox. And I'm not interested in using IE.

I wish we could delete our own posts like you can on other forums.

RE: Editing Your Posts

I'm not having any trouble with FF -- can those of you who say they can't edit with FF be more specific with the issue? Do you not see an edit link? Or do you edit and it doesn't work?

What type of computer, operating system and browser version are you using?

Screenshots are helpful, too.

Thanks!

RE: Editing Your Posts

When I click on Edit Post, nothing happens. When I hover over Edit Post the message javascript:clip('editpost','15') appears in the lower left hand corner of the screen.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop, Windows XP and Firefox 16.0.2

RE: Editing Your Posts

I tried editing the thread I started "happy thanksgiving from this Canadian", I wanted to see if one could delete their whole post, it seems I cannot but I removed what I wrote and typed "test", it worked.

I guess I could voice my opinion on a certain subject, then meet with arguments from other members, so I could basically erase what I wrote, I'm just playing devil's advocate here, in the sense that the edit function could be misused. Or am I over thinking this ? ( I tend to do that, lol)
