Hi Bob,

Why is it that edited posts sometimes indicate that they've been edited, and sometimes not?

I've previously edited posts that have been hours old and the message doesn't come up, and I've just edited a post that was eight minutes old and the edit message got tacked on.

I don't have a problem with the edit message, but I am curious as I often correct my posts.

The function that places the note on an edited post is turned off. It should not appear. Can you give me a specific URL to a message where it appears?

It's recommended that you "Preview" your posts first. That way, you can make any corrections or changes before it goes out over the mailing list. When you edit a post, the original has already gone out over the mailing list.

Thanks.

Well, you've got me. This is the first I've seen this happen.

I still recommend Previewing posts first.

Thanks.

Another one just popped up, http://www.hummernetworkforums.....787#255787, first post.

Maybe there's something in common that might indicate the cause?

Since it happens so very rarely, it must just be some kind of fluke. If there was a problem of some kind, it would happen much more frequently. There's nothing I can "fix" that I know of.

Ok, but another 'rare' one just appeared here: http://www.hummernetworkforums.....823#255823 (sixth one down).

I'm not trying to be difficult.........really! Very Happy

OK, I've solved it.

That message appears ONLY when a message is edited AFTER it's been replied to. If you post a message, then edit it shortly thereafter (before anyone has posted a reply), the message will not appear. If you edit a message after a reply to it has been posted, that message appears. This is why you rarely see it. Most edits are done shortly after posting.

That makes sense. Not that it happens here, but it stops people from editing to deny something that they've been called out on.
