I’ve honestly tried to find an answer without posting one of these questions. It’s a lot to get used to and learn but I’m liking it so far.
Anyway, is there a way to edit posts? Particularly ones in the buy and sell forum? I was trying to remove some sold items. I saw the pencil which brought up an edit done by the system but I didn’t see anywhere for me to edit.
Thanks for any help and a big thanks for the site overhaul!
It shouldn’t work any different on the buy/sell subgroup. At the bottom of your post, there should be a heart, chain and then pencil plus three dots. If you can edit you should see a pencil. That allows you to edit the thread. You should be able to remove text/sold items. There is probably a strike through options as well but I haven’t looked.

Discourse uses this method to make life difficult for spammers.
Thanks for the assist 1812. I saw the heart and chain and some other things but no pencil at the bottom. The trash can was greyed out so I can’t delete.
I see Robin is about to reply too. This is all so cool.
How to f**k with someones mind: open an edit window, type, delete, back and forth but don’t submit the Reply
I was a ding dong head and when I was reviewing a thread I created I say what you where talking about. Glad Robin could help out, I am going back to the corner.
Thanks Robin, I figured it had something to do with that.
All these fancy new terms to figure out…I don’t even know what I’m supposed to be searching for.
Just ask in this forum. An answered question can be a learning experince for the person providing the answer and for others who might read the topic.
