OK, now I see the button... it is hidden from view because of screen over flow..
Of all the 8 different RV forums and several non RV forums that I belong to, only this one and one other do not have their screen width set to internet standard..
Because of this, a person has to scroll back and forth just to read the posts.. The edit button was hidden off screen because I did not scroll over far enough..
Thanks for the help,
