    I was looking for a way to delete posts or threads and i'm not seeing any way of doing it. Am I missing something somewhere?

    Yep, that works to delete a single post.

    That doesn't show up in my originated posts. All I get is "Report"

    Interesting... I checked your user group permissions, you are fine there.. what are you viewing the board on?

    I don't have the option to edit or delete my posts either.
    Only 'Quote' or 'Reply' on the right side, and 'Report' on the left side.
    Using Firefox.

    4/7 Testing edit...

    Same problem. Running Firefox, windows 7
    I can delete any posts after the original post since there is an option on the lower left.

    The same option does not exist on the original thread post (see below). When I go into the edit option I still do not see a way to delete the original posting.

    Thanks Jim. Edit and delete works on regular posts but I still can't find a way to edit my garage.

    You should be able to edit/delete your garage items now also.. another permission setting..

    Les, the settings are correct now... down at the bottom of your post, you should see this:

    To See if you posted to a conversation, simply click the inbox tab off your homepage. It's in the upper bar..
    There you will see all your conversations, click on the correct one, and it will show the entire conversation, like a chat room. If your response is posted to it, then you "sent" it.
