      Can't edit (some) posts

      I can't seem to edit posts that are more than a few days old. I wanted to edit the post announcing the CU1 and CU2 firmware releases to say that they are now obsolete, but there's no Edit button on any of my posts except the most recent ones.

      I'm pretty sure there never used to be a time restriction like that before.

      Ive had a quick look and cant see anything obvious, have to wait for Ged to have a look something may have changed since the Thanks button was installed, so dont panic we are on the case

      Re: Can't edit (some) posts

      Can I add a request that posts that one has added a reply to include an icon which indicates this (if you have signed in). On sites which use this system (like Netgear's forum) it helps one quickly find posts which may need follow-up advice.

      You mean like an icon to show that you yourself have added a reply to a thread?

      Re: Can't edit (some) posts

      Surely it would be more useful to have an easy way to find who has replied to your posts. That way if you had a problem and you posted a request for help on the forum, you'll be able to find it easily. And also, if you had helped a person with a problem, you'd be able to find if they asked any follow-up questions.

      Something like a "See New Replies To My Posts" link, along there with the existing "View New Posts", etc., links.

      Re: Can't edit (some) posts



      On the left hand side of the forums, shows you that you have posted in that thread.

      If you click on http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/search/new/ (Which is located on the top NavBar) this will show you all the posts done since you last logged on.

      Look for the above icon, you can instantly see, if any, what posts you have partaken in have had any replies.

      If there are any new replies to a thread that you have posted in, it will show this

      If there are any new replies to a thread that you have not posted in, it will show this

      Re: Can't edit (some) posts

      I see the icons you mention -- but their meaning is less than obvious.

      If you were to post a reply on netgear.com forums (which has regular enquiries from Sky router users incidentally) you'll see how much clearer that is.
