That snippet is part of the source from my edit test on the test page. It look like the board is hiding the table cell the edit icon icon is in with Code:
I looked in the "forums/images" files and the edit icon is there.
Continued. I sucked my test page into an html editor and removed the offending style statement. When the style="display: none;" is removed from the html, then an edit button shows up to the immediate left of the "reply" button. That shouldn't be too hard to fix. I suspect the software is trying to only have the edit icon show up on the post authors display and is getting abit overzealous.

I would get an access forbidden error on the server if the permissions weren't set right on the editpost.php object (one would think).

You remove one layer of trouble, cry a little, see the next layer of trouble, cry some more....etc. This is like Pablo's rock problem, except for one thing. I found the rock but someone else gets to dig it out. Edit: Thanks for the clue Laminar, your address line mod works for me too. Until it get's fixed... To use Laminar's edit method, click on reply, then go to your addressbar and change "newreply.php" to "editpost.php". Edit 2: I see Laminar Lou beat me to the instructions on how to do it.
Quote:Here is the poor man's way to edit (until they figure it out): 1) Hit the reply button on the post you want to edit 2) Go to the link at the top of the page and change "newreply.php" to "editpost.php" Thankfully, the UBB server won't allow you to edit other people's posts this way - or else I could have a lot of fun with Pablo
Quote:I've tried this 5 times ..doing exactly that and get a new post every time. Here's my "reply" URL http://theoildrop.server101.com/forums/newreply.php?Cat=0&Board=UBB48&Number=727014&page=0&what=showflat&fpart=1&vc=1 Here's what I changed it to: http://theoildrop.server101.com/forums/editpost.php?Cat=0&Board=UBB48&Number=727014&page=0&what=showflat&fpart=1&vc=1 and each time a new post appears. You had to leave out some detail.
Quote:Gary, that looks right to me. And, I just edited this one following the directions. Are you hitting "enter" after typing "editpost"
