    I'm not able to edit my posts. Clicking the "edit" button does nothing.

    I had this problem before (around the time of the server move)- and I recall it coming up with others as well - but neither can I remember how I got around it, nor can I find the thread that talks about this problem.

    I'm having that problem too. What I found to have worked, and still does, is to click on the post number (top right hand corner), have it display the post in the window, and click on the EDIT button. That seems to work.

    I had this same problem around the time of the server move (not anymore though).
    What I did was to clear the cache, refresh the page, and then click the edit button again.
