    you can for 24 hours... this is fairly common, however if you need it longer I can set it. Most sites don't however with the nature of this one it may be best to have it unlimited. For security reasons also this is normally not done without getting into all that but I am open

    I'm torn.
    I think 3 minutes was way to short but unlimited adds additional problems. When a post is made and has a bunch of replies and then the OP edits with new info or ads pics in the first, I get lost.
    Maybe edit until a reply is made?

    I'm with Eric, unlimited is too long. In my opinion, should be limited to short time

    Andy . . . Can you be more specific about how you edited a post. I can find no prompt that offers such an option.

    Texkev . . . Twenty-four hours seems reasonable, but where is the button for edit??
