Editing a Post on Topology and Analysis Forum

  1. Apr 17, 2015 #1
    I recently completed a post on the Topology and Analysis forum ... after I posted, I noticed that some of my language was awkward and not quite clear ... so I wished to edit the post ...

    Can someone help with information on how to edit a post on Analysis and Topology ...

    @Math Amateur, be advised that the edit window is short-lived, just a few hours. After that time has elapsed you won't be able to edit your post. However, if you use the Report button and say what needs to be changed, one of the mentors can edit the post for you.
