Deleting Posts

I make mistakes all the times and I notice that usually later. In this forum, how can I delete my post? Somehow, the forum does not give me a permission to delete my posts.

Hi Shurafa,

Once you are logged in - alongside the edit icon (bottom right corner of your post) there is a delete icon. So you can delete your own posts. Caveat here. I am a moderator so don't actually know if that behaviour is the same for non moderators. Rusty might help here. And others might check if they can see the delete icon on their own posts. rgds

Vibe-Rater Marhaba!

In fact, I can see the icon but once I click on it, another screen opens with an error message. It says I'm not permitted to delete my message.

This is not new as I have been seeing the same "error" since first days of joining. I'm not sure if it a common issue or its is only in my account.

I second you that maybe if other members can test and post their feedback, that could help identifying what is going on.

I had a look at some of the topics I started, there are edit and delete option on replies, but only an edit option on the "opening" post

If you really want a topic deleted, drop me an email and tell me about it.  Things posted here become the "property" of the community (well, sort of), so I hesitate to delete topics, unless it makes sense to do so.  But it can be done.

Hello Rusty, 

Can you please at least enable the post initiator to edit the title of the thread?

If you see my recent post about tge simulators, the title is ugly.

Shurafa, there is a way to edit the title of a topic you started, but it’s not obvious or intuitive. At the bottom right of your first post, tap the “Edit” button And the edit window will open so you can edit your post. At the bottom right you should again see an “Edit” button, highlighted in blue. Tap this and a title box should appear For editing the title.

Done.
Yes, one needs to hit Edit and hit the second Edit to be prompted to the feild of Title.

Thanks a lot Rusty for the clarification.
