Where to ask q's about editing posts please

Daisy A is trying to help me with my blog posts on The Fresh Loaf.   I am obviously missing something or doing something wrong because when I try to edit a post, I only get the options to 'Save' or 'Preview' when in the Edit screen.   Daisy A gets a 'Delete' option.  We've compared screen grabs and she sees something I don't.  Is there a simple explanation or could someone kindly point me to where I might find the answer.  I don't understand how one edits or amends a post here, let alone deletes it. Is there a guide for idiots to writing posts on this forum somewhere?


many thanks for any help,

Once someone replies to you, some of the options disappear, so you will not be able to go back and edit or delete the post.  That is a feature of the software I use and is meant to keep conversions honest and moving forward.


If you have a particular post you need edited or deleted, PM me and I can help.  If you just have a clarification though I'd suggest just adding a comment to your own thread.

Hi Floyd,


Thanks for your response. It's the blog that is proving puzzling. I can get to this page via the Edit tag on my blog but this is problematic for Zeb:



Kind regards, Daisy_A

Hi Floyd - I take your point absolutely about keeping the conversations honest. I'm not being clear sorry. I don't know if you can read the messages between me and Daisy I've put a screen grab there of what I see in Edit mode and I don't see a Delete like she does.  I got into a real muddle doing that post and created 4 identical posts in the process of trying to sort out some typos. I think the way forward for me is to draft the whole post off line and only post it when I am sure it is how I want it.  I realise with hindsight that must be what people do. I am used to the Wordpress set up and carried my habits over from there of drafting and correcting as I go.  Thanks Zeb

Hey Zeb,


Try again, I think you'll see the delete.

I am a new user and accidentally posted 4 new forum topics (identical).  I'd like to keep just the latest one and delete the first three.  But I don't have a delete button.  What to do?

At the very bottom of the page is information how to contact Floyd Mann, the owner of the site.  You can ask him to delete the other three.   

Best of luck on your new venture.  You should also check out advertising at the Bread Bakers Guild of America:  http://www.bbga.org/
