    I have searched and searched. One search took me to the iPF.net site and the thread was closed. Q - I have seen 'Edit' in a few posts, can you edit a post once it is uploaded or can you only add an 'edit' if either, how? Is there an area where we can read all the related info on posting?

    Anybody can edit their own posts. Here's a little edit I performed on an earlier post of mine.

    image-211616202.jpgTap the space beside your avatar to bring up the edit button.

    image-2821791705.jpgUsing your finger, place the blue cursor on the spot you want to edit.



    image-928639929.jpgThen tap send.

    image-1663461.jpgThe edited post.

    Too late, Mickey, I was working on just that when you moved the post to it's own thread.;)

    Yep, saw that, scifan, so I deleted my post. I think I just type too slowly! :D

    Roy Rob - in case you missed it, I moved your question to its own thread. It's a good question and I did not want it buried in another member's introduction thread.

    As I was moving it, scifan answered your question on how to edit posts using the forum app (this also works if you are using the Tapatalk forum app).

    These two pictures show you how to edit on the web (or within the browser of the apps):

    There. Probably more than ever wanted to know on how to edit your posts. :) But, there you go! Oh, and do note that members can only edit their own posts, while moderators and admin can edit any.

    Just as a little aside, some threads do not allow editing, off the top of my head (which is quite empty and echoes a lot) the News section is one where posts can't be edited.

    Thank you scifan and Marilyn, just edited my post above scifan's reply. Works just fine. Is there somewhere to get all the instructions for posting? I looked on iPF.net site but it said thread closed.

    Not really, lots of good information but thanks anyway gabriel. For instance - When I am composing a reply and make a typo in the first line I can't use the magnifying glass positioner for the cursor, nor a finger tap. The cursor goes to the beginning letter and stays there. Cancel and start again is the only option or backspace to the error to fix it. After the first 'return' things settle down. I uploaded two pictures in a post yesterday one appeared where I wanted, the other appeared after my signature? Should I have selected 'linear' for both? I can't recall if the app gave me the chance. Stuff like this...

    Ok, there is a bug in the IPF App at present which we are waiting for a fix for however, if you reply by quoting a post you won't have a problem otherwise just hit return and you'll be ok, don't worry about the extra spaces, they will be taken care of when you hit send.

    As for photos, when you upload, touch the arrow to the right of the thumbnail image and select "insert inline" for each photo.
