Title: Option to modify posts has disappeared for SOME posts in a thread
Post by: sevenof400 on January 02, 2017, 11:30:57 am
In the thread noted below in Jump Ball, I have been updating the OP with the updated RPI numbers as the season has worn on.  This has worked fine until this morning - now, for some reason, I CANNOT modify the OP BUT I can modify several other posts of mine after this post (http://www.hogville.net/yabbse/index.php?topic=623145.msg10619178#msg10619178).  I tried clearing my browser cache (Safari), and even tried a different browsers (Brave and Firefox) but the problem follows.

Any idea what is causing this or what I can do to get around it?

Are you sure you're mashing the right buttons?

Yes I am Jimmy - the modify button is not even showing up.  I'll post a screen shot here in a moment.

Notice the absence of the modify option in the initial post in that thread, and a bit further down too.  But immediately after the first post in the second screen shot, the modify button appears for those posts. 

The thread is not locked - but I have been modifying / updating the first post on that thread a good bit. 

Is there perhaps a limit to the number of times a post can be modified / updated?

And it has happened again in another thread.  I guess there must be a limit to the number of times a posting can be modified????

Maximum time after posting to allow edit" is set at 336 hours after the initial post was made. changed
