    Hi guys,

    I'm not very computer literate, sorry...
    I have a post running on the "Holsters and Related Items" forum and I goofed up trying to post pictures, several times.... So, I tried to edit the post or to delete the entire post. It keeps telling me that I can't.
    Can someone tell me how to edit, or better yet, delete my own post?
    I notice that some of the fellows edit their posts to tell others after an item is sold, so I figure it can be done?
    Thanks,
    JerryinPA

    1) make sure you are "logged in".

    2) see the little "edit" button on the lower right hand corner of your post? poke it.

    I do "poke" the edit button, and here's the message that I get.

    You usually cannot "delete" your posts. You should have no problem editing them.

    Even if you can't delete your post, you could replace the entire post, photos and all, with a "."

    1. How do I contact you to ask you to delete a thread?

    2. How do I buy you a beer? (I also am somewhere in Pennsylvania, and if I ever should meet you, I would be honored to buy you a beer!)
