    Ok, imagine the situation: You're on a thread - You've just posted but you remember you need to add something urgently!

    You: "Oh no! My edit button does not work!"

    Crisis? If you double post you'll get an infraction under the new rules. But it's important. Here's what you do:

    Step 1) Find out what your post's ID number is. To do this, copy the link on the "Quote" button. At the end of this link, there are some numbers after an "=" sign.

    Step 2) Copy these numbers.

    Step 3) Store the numbers somewhere like I've done, and then copy and paste this into your web browser:

    Step 4) Finally, take your post ID from wherever you stored it, and add it to the end of this URL. Hit Enter - And this should bring up the Edit Post menu.

    And now click Save!


    And you don't get in trouble for double posting - "Phew."
    Hope this helps.
