I've never been able to edit my posts. I can click on "Edit" and I can make the edits, but when I choose "Save Changes" the edits do not show up in the post.

Any ideas why this is happening?

Strange, I edit a lot of my posts.

What browser (and version #) do you use, because maybe it's a problem specific to that browser?

After you click edit, try clicking "Go Advanced" which takes you to the normal posting interface rather than the ajax editor. Does that allow the edit to take?

I'm using IE7. I'll try to edit something using the normal posting interface.

FWIW, I use IE7 as well and no problems.

If editing the post your WANTING to edit doesn't work again, try editing one of your posts in this particular thread. Maybe there's a limitation in specific subforums about editing posts (although I'd think the edit button wouldn't even appear in those subforums if that was the case).

Now that I think more, I'll bet it's a security setting in IE7 that you don't have enabled that is not allowing the ajax editor to work correctly ... so like I said, try the "Go Advanced" button and see if that allows it to work right.

EDIT: Tried switching editors.

I can edit if I switch editors. There's a button on the upper right hand corner of the editor. When I click on that it switches to a white background on the editor and the edits stick. Who knows?

Change your default options in UserCP.
Down where it says "Message Editor Interface".
Then you won't have to keep switching.

What is it currently is set to use, the "Fulll WYSIWYG Editor"?

Yes, it was set to WYSIWYG Editor. I just changed it. We'll see if that works. Thanks for the help.

No problem, I too use the standard editor with extra formatting controls.
