Default Edit/delete a post

I do not find the "Edit" button that is mentioned in the Help ... what should I do to make it visible so that I can edit/delete a post (in Market Classifieds)?

thanks!!

Hey, David; Welcome!
Are you logged in as a member?
You should be able to see your screen name up in the masthead...over on the far left, it'll say "Welcome david1431" in small print.
If you don't see it you aren't logged in. See example below.
Also you can only edit a post for a relatively short while after posting. A Moderator can do it for you if you send them a message.

If it has been sold it's best not to delete it but mark the thread as the item is sold. That way if someone went back to check for it they know it's no longer available. To do that Mike you go into the Moderation Tools box at the top of the thread and use that edit function. Took me a while to find that and figure it out the first time I tried it.

I think the EDIT button only works for a short period of time after you post. I think it's there for half an hour or so, then disappears. After that a moderator has to do it.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

You have 3 hours to edit your post, after that you can contact an admin/mod and we can look into it for you.
