I think post deletion is an admin/mod thing. Like, you have a few minutes after posting to be able to delete, but after that, a mod has to do it.  (I *think*. Each forum software is a little different.)

Software updates have changed the ability to remove a post after a few days. Anyway, I could remove the post I made, and I was logged in.

I was wrong w/ the admin and 'few minutes' thing anyway - since I can still see the 'remove' on my post from yesterday. So hmmmmmm.....

Are you still not able to do this or was it just one post in particular?

Whoever got in and changed the ability to remove/delete a post, it's working. Not sure if the problem was caused by me being in the US. I haven't deleted anything from 2016 since I had a different username. So far, it was only one post.

I haven't made any changes so must've been a glitch at the time if it's allowing you to delete now.
