The new iPadForums.net website has been designed from the ground up to work perfectly from any mobile, tablet, or desktop computer using the built in internet browser.

    It sure if this is in the right category, happy for it to be moved...

    On the IPF App (which I love and recommend), I can't find an option to edit a post. Is there an option? Can there be (fluttering of eyelashes)?

    Is there an option to just go to New Posts? (ie posts without replies). On the website, the New Posts section don't seem to do this, and on the App there isn't an option. (or is there?)

    And, because I'm new to Threads/Forums etc, please excuse my limited knowledge, but is there a 'flag' where we can bring a post to your attention? Such as someone spamming the site, or a post that's in the wrong category.

    Lastly, can I have a job? (more fluttering of eyelashes)

    I appreciate your time in putting up with me. Lol. :)

    To edit one of your own posts, press the blue arrow on the right hand side of the post. This will bring up a menu, where you can select the EDIT choice. Make your edits, then hit SEND.

    On the website, the New Posts option shows posts with unread replies. As soon as you have read all the posts it disappears from the list. The useful thing here is that you can mark all forums read, then use New Posts to see what is going on right now. On the app the closest thing is, or appears to be the Current tab with options on which posts you wish to see.

    To report a post, use the same arrow as you would to edit a post. Then hit Report and give your reason for reporting the post. All moderators receive your report and will take action. And thanks for offering to do this.

    Not sure what the criteria are for getting a job, so can't help you there. ;)

    To edit a post, you tap the downwards arrow below the day and time, as you can see from my screenshot.
    To report, or flag a post, you just hit the report button that's in the same options menu as the edit post button.
    To view new threads, or new posts you haven't seen yet, you just tap the last visit tab as you can see from the second screenshot.

    Christiana-this is a great question that I am sure other members here have wondered. Thanks for bringing it up, and see-you even received some nice skitches from one of our Super Moderators! Hope that helped you!

    By the way, you are doing a nice job helping our members here. You have good answers that helped them. We appreciate your efforts!

    I've moved this to the IPF App forum as its probably the correct place for it to be.
