    Hi,I recently posted a reply to a thread in the dozer section and made a mistake for some reason I was not able to either clear the reply or delete the page that i had posted'
    I tried to edit it a few minutes after I realised my error but was unable to change it
    also how do I include a page from another thread into a different section of the forum?
    this is what I tried to remove

    Sorry I stuffed this post up

    Users should have an hour to "edit" posts (make changes to the post), themselves. Any later than that and a staff member can still edit them, but to actually "delete" one (make a post disappear altogether), it takes a staff member.

    I looked at what you'd posted and deleted the one you stuffed up.

    I'm not quite sure what you're asking here.

    Not sure if there is a "correct method" but what about just doing a simple copy and past thing?

    Or use the "+quote" thing over to the right at the bottom of the page? Not sure if that will carry over images or attached files.

    hi Ken thanks for your reply ,yes I can copy and paste but the post doesn't look like it has been quoted as compared to when you use the quote button.

    Mark; How much of a page are you wanting to post in another thread ? Would taking a screenshot of a page accomplish what you are wanting to do ?
    I use a software program to do it --like this. 2018-06-11_073830mark.png
