How to edit a post?

I have a post that's running and i would like to edit pricing and availablity.
There is not an 'edit' button on the original post, and for the life of me i can figure out why?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
TIA

There's like a four day window to edit posts, but I'm not sure if that applies on the Buy/Sell boards also.

The 4 day edit window applies to all posts in all forums.

Most members simply add a post to their thread if the details of a sale are changed.

That's all fine and goopd except the ability to edit the title is still non existant.

Being able to edit the title is necessary to bring people back to the thread when pricing changes.

Adding another post moves the thread back to the top of the forum.

That alone will notify people that something has been added. Most people will view such a thread.

If, however, you must have the title edited, PM a member of staff and ask them to edit it for you.
