    ...i dont know if its a glitch in my laptop or in the edit function but most times i try to edit and it wont load. i have to go back to the forum page and open the post again and then edit it again and then it will work. it would be nice if i knew it was on my end and i could try to figure out why its happening. even when i 'go advanced' it doesnt make a difference.

    anyone else have that happen? i should just proof read first but, i dont.

    thank you, try the veal its great!

    I haven't had any problems like that, R.P.. The edit function works fine for me.

    I probably have a crappy computer, but this happens to me every once in awhile.

    Is anyone still having issues with this? In order for me to make edits, I have to click edit, then refresh, then click edit again, make changes and click save. Clicking save the first time after editing my post does nothing, as if I am clicking on thin air, so to speak. Happens every time too, not intermitant. Using a brand new computer since I posted about it here back in May, so that isn't the issue I don't think.

    Did the same thing when I edited this post too.

    yes, I am having this issue and it's driving me crazy. I fuck up every post so I always need to edit and hate having to attempt twice every time :(

    any workaround other than me getting smarter?
