    ... Can't find the delete button to remove the post.... any clue where its located? Will move it once I stumble across it.

    I really think the delete option was not enabled for posts after the upgrade of the site.

    I had to double check the permissions just be be sure.

    Normal members are able to delete posts, but not threads. Typically when you click to edit a post, you then see the option to delete. This is not the case when it's the first post in a thread, since deleting that post would delete the thread.

    On the "8533-Replacement-of-Alpine-IVA-NAV-10" thread, I want to delete one of my posts (it is redundant)
    Either #13 or #14.

    When I looked at the thread a day later, my post wasn't there. So I submitted a new one. Now I have two.

    Also, I don't know how #13 got two images in it. I really only needed one.

    I can't edit or delete my posts. It says I don't have permission. How can I get it?

    Thanks.

    -Scotty

    I took care of it. As a new member you may have had limited permissions. Those limits eventually go away.

    I don't see the delete button (nor edit post button) and i am not a new member. Why is that?

    After 24 hours, you can no longer edit your post unless it's the first post in the thread and you are the OP.

    EDIT: I would have thought my 4,000th would have been a bit different. :)
