Editing replies

Could someone let me know how to edit replies please, have tried a couple of times. When logged in edit reply option shows but just brings up new text window, thanks from a luddite

Not had any issues with that, but it could be that you can't edit it if you log out and back in again or if someone has replied since?

Just edited and works

edited again - still works after logging out

Works OK for me.

Possibly a conflict with a setting in your browser. Which browser (and version) are you using?

Never had that problem but will try editing this one.


Saved it then hit edit and here we are. What browser are you using? Suggest that you do all the cache purging etc and see if that makes a difference . 

I will now log off OLC and log back on and see if that causes a problem.

BACK AGAIN!   No problem.

The one thing that I have found is that if I have to do a complicated edit to an existing post on the iPad it is a total pain. In fact if I’m doing anything with images on OLC I go to the desk top PC as the site just appears to be iPad unfriendly . Only use a phone for phoning but I suspect that may be the same.

Hi, thanks for replies.  I’m using iPad iOS 11.4.1. I don’t find images a pain just trying to edit my reply. I’m sure there’s more important things to worry about so I’ll just carry on.
