Can someone point me in the direction for editing my own posts please.

Can't seem to find an 'edit' button but that could just be my age!
Cheers

There is a time limit set up of 5 or 10 minutes after which they can not be edited.

Thanks for your speedy reply.
I find this rule very odd to be honest, but rules are rules and I'm sure there must be some reasoning behind it.
Thanks

On a help site where staff can spend a lot of time researching and/or decoding .dmp files for example it becomes too easy to miss details if the OP edits previous posts instead of making a new one, also edits do not trip the notification system to alert the helpers/staff of replies to the thread.

I appreciate the difficulties in keeping track of edits etc. And also the fact that you are all volunteers dedicated to helping others to find solutions to their problems and must implement rules to facilitate this.
The reason that I wanted to edit was that I have a recent post where I requested help with two macros. I realised later that this should have been posted as two single requests for help.
Can this post be deleted and resubmitted as two posts? If not then that's fine and I'll leave it as originally posted.
Thanks
Alex

Many thanks for that. All is fine now. Perhaps if you could just amend the first line of the post so that it doesn't refer to two macros.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Managing your posts
Hello, IN the TSF, if I download all my posts as html files, can I combine all those html files into one file? Also, is there a way to see JUST the posts I posted and not every time someone commented on them? Is there a way to collapse all responses? My goal is to have all my posts neatly in...

I just noticed that I cannot sort New Posts by the Replies column. If my memory serves me right, this feature used to be available and I could sort them so that posts with zero replies topped the list (and/or vice versa). This feature is available if I visit a specific section such as the Laptop...
