    Is there anyway to delete a post within the 20 minute time limit?

    No,, after 20 minutes only a mod can delete a post. Send me a note to what you want deleted and I will delete it for you.

    Yes, click the "edit post" button below the post; once in edit mode, a check box will be available above the post on the left which says "delete this post in the following manner".... Check the box and then click the button on the right which says "delete post".

    ....After 20 minutes you gotta ask a moderator.

    The above from a computer; not sure how/if it works from other devices.

    Thanks iofthe. That is how I recall deleting a post once before - but for the life of me could not find that delete box and I tried several times within the 20 minutes. I'll try with this post now.

    UPDATE: I found the delete button easily when trying to delete this post. I'm now thinking that the system might be set up so that a "first" original post can be modified (but NOT deleted entirely).

    It works the same with the OP of a new thread... I just tested it for my own edumacation. (There's a forum specific to this sort of subject matter: http://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com/.../30-Forum-tips)
