My account seems to be persisting nicely now, and auto-logging in when I return.

I have an email this morning from Bill P saying he's having problems signing on --I pointed him at Jim's advice above.

I also now seem to be persistent. ;) Thanks for the instructions.

Wha' happened to the "edit" button for your own posts?

I'm not sure. From what I see, you should be able to edit your own posts. I'll see what I can do.

I think I see the problem. It's a "snooze you lose" deal. I can edit my most recent post, but if I wait a day or so I'm outta luck.

Stupid of me not to recognize the problem. Once a post has been read by anyone, it can no longer be edited. Except by me :twisted:

So when NexusForum traffic rises to several thousand active readers per thread at any given time, editing will be effectively impossible.

David, dig into the permissions - I think there may be a built-in mode that sets an editing time limit. If not, there may be a simple mod that adds the feature. I don't think allowing unlimited editing is a good idea, but as someone who frequently edits his posts 2-3 times in the course of getting them into place, I'd like to see a 15 to 30 minute "oops, damn" window.

I will look over the settings and support info and see if there's anything I can suggest.
