Do you know how to edit/make changes to an existing post?

I have been wondering this as well. I am not that sure you can. 

I do know that if you initiated the forum, you can edit the title by clicking the "edit" button right under the title. This only lasts for a short time after posting.

 The "Edit" button also should appear right next to the "Vote" button an any of your posts - for about 15-30 minutes. After that, there should still appear an "Update" button which allows you to ADD a post-script to your post (even months later). Cheers...

"Update". This is what you should be able to do on any of your posts. The "Update" option replaces the "Edit" option after fifteen minutes. There have been glitches before, but my computer has enabled this "Update"...

@Derek Gendig , I just noticed that the "Vote" button DID disappear from all posts, so was wondering if there was a glitch, but then I realized that I was not logged in under my Biggerpockets Name. Normally you don't need to log in every time you access it from an email link, but will need to after you do software upgrades on your computer which change your settings. So, I logged back in, and voila! The "Vote" and "Edit"/"Update" buttons re-appeared. Cheers...
