A user can click in this and immediately change or alter any of my text. How do I turn off the [Edit} on the page or post? The blog I need help with is iamahome.com.

Other Admins, if you have any, of your site would too, but I don’t think you have any. Look at anyone else’s site – you don’t see the [Edit] because it is not your blog. March 13, 2012 at 8:07 pm #844544 cjackkittycatMember You’re the only one that sees that. Check out your blog without logging in to see what a regular “visitor” weeks see. March 13, 2012 at 8:08 pm #844545 cjackkittycatMember I’m always late to the party. :) March 13, 2012 at 8:09 pm #844547 cjackkittycatMember I gotta stop doing this from my stinking phone! So, no way to edit existing forum posts? March 13, 2012 at 8:13 pm #844550 gof78Member Thank you all, that did occur to me after I posted the question but I didn’t test it. You may have been late for the party cjackkittycat but I’m glad you came anyway. March 13, 2012 at 8:33 pm #844562 timethiefMember @cjackkittycat Due to the past behavior of kids and trolls only Staff and Moderators can edit forum posts, delete them or close them. March 13, 2012 at 8:55 pm #844577 gof78Member Timethief: done as requested. March 13, 2012 at 8:58 pm #844578 timethiefMember Thank you and best wishes with your blog. :) March 14, 2012 at 12:06 am #844603 cjackkittycatMember Makes sense Timethief! It’s good for me, it will improve my proof-reading skills. ;) Thanks! March 14, 2012 at 12:08 am #844604 timethiefMember Hi again, While we are on the subject, have you located the proofreader yet? http://en.support.wordpress.com/proofreading/ March 14, 2012 at 12:15 am #844605 cjackkittycatMember Yeah, thanks! It’s mostly due to the fact that when I comment in a forum from my phone I inevitably have some sort of weird auto-correct or Swype error that sneaks through. I appreciate the help! March 14, 2012 at 12:24 am #844607 timethiefMember Oh well, I tried. :) Author Posts The topic ‘The word "Edit"’ is closed to new replies.
