    When can you edit posts?

    Hi,

    Few questions for you;

    1. I went to edit my post and don't have privileges, when can you do so?

    for instance i wanted to edit a html address to point to a more permanent link as the one I just realized will be constantly changing.

    2. If you have a web page that you have questions on, is it better to point to directly on the web or upload the html and css files in a zip file?

    3. Will my web address I posted show up in google? (hope not)

    Thanks,

    1) In this forum you must have 10 posts before you can edit your posts. That is an anti-spam feature to prevent people from addding objectionable material to a previously acceptable post which has passed moderation.

    2) People are very reluctant go open zip files which might include malware. I would never open one.

    3) No.

    All advice is supplied packaged by intellectual weight, and not by volume. Contents may settle slightly in transit.

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.

    And once you can edit your own posts, you can only edit a post for the first 7 days of its life. After that if there is something that does need to be edited (like removing a URL or something), PM one of the super moderators about it.

    Is that the same for our blogs?
    See my new CodingForums Blog: http://www.codingforums.com/blogs/tangoforce/

    Many useful explanations and tips including: Cannot modify headers - already sent, The IE if (isset($_POST['submit'])) bug explained, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING, debugging tips and much more!

    That's why I can't edit my thread.
