Ok i did a post yesterday and included a non exceptable word, completely my fault, i should have paid more attention.


I enjoy a forum that makes people use proper language, does it also ban the deliberate misspelling of Microsoft with $ instead of s, and Apple prefaced with cr as they are 2 of my many bugbears


However the problem was that once i had hit submit and it came up and told me I had the naughty word, I could not work out how to get back to my post to edit it, i clicked on the title of my post but i just ended up back on a new topic page with the message box empty.


I ended up redoing the post so no issue




So anyway my question is how do i get back to my message to edit it when this happens (I don't intend it to be a habit), is there some step i am missing


I was using Microsoft Edge browser (I decided to give it a go on the kids machine) if that makes any difference








PS I haven't tried it again to see if I can figure out how to solve it as i don't want to end up on some banned for rude words list

Just click Back in your browser. I've just tested this and it worked for me (Safari on Mac).
