How?

Not finding an edit option anywhere on my pages.

Thanks in advance for nearly any response.

Nope.
I have "Quote"... that's all.

I'm running a MacBook Pro w/ macOS Sierra v10.12.5.
Browser is Safari v10.1.1

In theory, none of those things should be an issue for forum operation - just filling in the blanks for ya

There's only the 'quote' button present with Safari on PC too.  Same goes for Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

Are we all going to have to downgrade to Bambo's IE2?  Either that or just don't make mistakes.   :D

sh@do, I only have the quote button there, nothing else. Could it possibly be a permissions thing?

Look at the picture I attached previously. Look at the position where the icon I am referring to is located. It is located at the center right edge of your post box. Look at the attachment I put on this reply for even better clarity.

To try and clarify further ... Look at the right side of the page. You should see "report to moderator" and your ip address (ex: 61.42.84.125). Directly above your ip address is a icon. If you mouse over it, it will say "Modify Message"

I did not say anything about hovering over "Modify". Please re-read my post.

Nope, nothing there, other than 'Quote', as in my screen shot.

I can't see any way of changing the theme......Don't tell me you have a button for it?  >:( lol.

I had a look at the online manual, and it talks about Admins deciding if certain members types are allowed to edit their own posts, and for how long after posting (ie permissions).

It's no big deal, I'm sure there are far more pressing matters to be dealt with, before something like this. :)
