Edit doesn't work in Places

JamieK Nov 6, 2007 02:08 PM

The edit button doesn't work for me when I try to update a place link. Is it just me?

    As far as we know, this is a problem exclusive to IE and perhaps some other older browsers and should now be fixed.

    Thanks as always for the feedback and patience.

      Where is the 'edit' button supposed to appear? I use Firefox and I'd love to be able to edit. On a recent post I made a mistake and searched in vain for a way to edit it!!

        On board posts, the edit button appears in the bottom row--but for only 2 hours after you post. After that, if you'd like to make an edit, please either 'report' the post and describe the edit you want in the comments, or if it's more than a single short correction, email moderators@chowhound.com.

        On places entries, the edit button appears in several places on the page, as long as you're logged in.

      This seems to be common to IE browsers -- anyone experiencing it in any other browser that they can see the edit buttons, but clicking them does nothing?

        Still not able to edit and update in Places.

          No. I can't edit either ... PC, IE 7, dial-up. And the site is at a crawl again,but absolutely no response on Places no matter how long I wait when pressing edit.

            I've been able to edit, but the site has slowed down considerably in the last couple hours. I'm on a fast connection tonight and not having any problems with speed on any other websites.

              Things have speeded up again, and maybe it's my imagination, but seem faster than before.
