Is the "edit post" feature no longer available under the new formatting?

I wanted to edit a "Giveaway" post I had made to indicate a donation of spare parts has been made, and the parts were therefore no longer available. My intention was to allow readers to quickly determine that there was not much point in reading the thread. I find however that I'm unable to edit my thread title to indicate a CLOSED status.

Amy I missing something? Or is the edit feature no longer available to the thread's author?

(This isn't a rant; I just want to be sure I'm not misinterpreting anything.) Thanks.

I am able to edit a post I made on July 16th, but not one I made July 15th. Perhaps there is a time Limit?
Im on desktop, so I cant speak for mobile users. For me the Edit option simply appears right next to the Report button.

Can't speak for others, but a post I made has "report" to the bottom left with some dots and a down facing triangle. Click on the dots and edit is an option.
I don't see the dots so am unable to edit as well

Now to add a pic from a 3rd part click the "add photo" pic at the top (the square with a mountain) and the click the little chain looking thing on the right and paste your 3rd party link and hit save.

I guess maybe a little more time to work out the bugs. I can edit the posts in this thread but cannot edit my sale thread that was posted before the changes.

No biggie, J will get things sorted in time.
Still really liking the new format. (y)

I can report similar problems in my GB thread, FWIW, glad it's not just me, technical misery loves company, and I tend to find those problems are often more solvable...

Yup when 857 folks here have the same issue you can figure a solution isn't far away. It's those time you post in the problems section and ends up you are the only one with the issue……doh!

I'm looking into this, and will update this post when I know more.
Several usergroups multiple people are a part of that still needs more clean up.

Just so folks know, there are/were 16 usergroups and each forum had their own permissions. So I'm making great headway, but still working on a number of things. So thank you for your patience as we I work through the list.

Awesome, looking forward to the fix. I currently posted a sale today and have no means of editing it.

BTW I can edit here but not on the marketplace yet.
