    I will try to capture an exact occurrence for you later Matt, but I wanted to tell you about this while I could remember it, since Anne said she had the same problem.

    When I tried to edit some of the pages I was creating for the site, I would go back to make edits, but it wouldn't accept them. I tried several times. On one page I finally got it to accept an edit, but it took several attempts. The other pages just would not change, so I decided to give up for now and get back to it later. It was taking up so much time, and I was getting frustrated.

    Now Anne says she couldn't make an edit to one of her posts. I wonder if others are having the same problem.

    In my case it wasn't that my edits weren't saved, but not on every forum an 'edit'-button seemed available after I post a reply.
    ETA: on this post, there is not only a 'report' link (like on the post were I mentioned the problem), but also an 'edit' and 'delete' button, both were missing before.

    There is a time limit on when you can do that. It helps prevent spamming. If you leave the post for a bit and come back you can edit and delete it. I think it also has a feature to turn those off a certain time also.

    Your issues is totally different and i would have to replicate it as all the examples i have done work right. It might be that you are copying and pasting and it has an issue with that. I am not 100 percent sure though.

    I figured it didn't like my copying some of the text, so I decided to walk away for away and come back to it and actually type the text in. It still would not take. I even tried on the last two nights, and still had problems. The pages I was having problems on were the Terms and the Privacy pages. I'll try to capture it for you when it occurs next time I try.
