    After 2 hours, you can't edit your posts anymore. If you have something it's important to add to an original post, you can let us know by emailing us at moderators@chowhound.com with the new text you want to use, otherwise, just reply to your own post and add your additional information in your reply.

      Well, that response does not provide much help. How do you edit within the first 2 hours of posting? There seems to be no edit button. And this is a serious issue. I wish you could add an edit option as it would cut down on multiple posts if you can just add to your first post as needed. Most other forums have this option.

        If your post is less than 2 hours old, there's an edit button in between 'Report' and 'Reply'. Once the 2 hours is up, that button is no longer there.

        For more on why we limit the edit window, see this post: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/46347...
