I went to edit a brewlog to update the process and cant seem to find the edit tab, has it dissapeared entirely or is it just me?

Huh, I don't see it either. Pete and Vicky were going to do some maintenance on the forum database this weekend, maybe the edit function is currently disabled while that is going on.

I'll take a look, we haven't made any changes to to patrons profiles so there should be no differences whatsoever.

Odd, both of your profiles follow the patron template and both are enabled. I'll have to dig a little deeper later on today or tomorow.

Thanks for the heads up.

My posts from today are edit-enabled, but the one above (or below for you Pete) in this thread (for example) is not. I'll edit this one here if I can.

Sorry for the multipost, but ah well.

New oddity: The post I made in the Hive today is editable, but one in the same thread from yesterday or so is not. I will go try the log out log in thing immediately after posting this and see if that works.

Vicky and I figure this is a corruption issue from the db crash we had last week toward the end of the week. We're looking at the different tables to see if we skipped a pointer or an index file or something. I ran some table repairs but the permissions still show a no-edit own post setting in your profile details, but the group "Patron" has a yes-edit own post setting for all the global members. I suspect that this is the case for all Patrons, but does not seem to be affecting Premium or Lifetime Patrons. We'll see.

Thanks for the heads up folks. We are working on it, it's an odd one for sure, and it's not affecting everyone the some across the board in the patrons categories so it's tough to find a consistent configuration/profile issue.

Thanks all for your patience!

No progress on this folks, just be patient and it will be resolved soon hopefully.
