i would like to request the function to edit my posts through smartphones as there is no way in its current settings.

reason i ask this is many times my phone would auto correct and or my thumb press adjacent letters leading to grammatical errors and potential misunderstanding that could be otherwise addressed with a simple edit.

This is already possible.  I do it all the time.  On my phone I press and hold in the body of the message.  The editing options appear on screen.

seriously??? This is gold Jerry, GOLD!

 

jk aside, thanks for the heads up, belated as it is.

 

EDIT (through computer): You got me, it doesn't work. I meant including the editing feature after said post is already posted. :( You made me hold the screen like an idiot, well played..

Hoo-kay... So what phone are you using, with what browser to reach the Nexus forums?

 

As I said, displaying the Edit option (or Quote, on someone else's post) is as easy as pressing the screen for me.

Same for me. As I demonstrate by quoting Thandal from my phone that way. :thumbsup:

And now I add this by using "Edit" the same way.
