Editing a post can only be done with-in 2 days, after that it is locked.
When I hit edit on one of my existing posts I get this new in place editor.
Problem is there are still the Edit, Quote and if it is the last reply the Post Reply buttons that are much more visable then the editors gray Save button.
The Edit, Quote, and Post Reply buttons should disapear or be deactivated when the editor is active.
That is nice, and water is wet.
Neither fact has anything to do with the Edit, Quote, and Post Reply buttons being more visible and therefore more likely to be hit when one is distracted with correcting an error in a reply, then the (gray) Save button in the editor. Gray buttons are normally not active buttons.
And if you are in the editor to fix a reply why would you even need the Edit, Quote, and Post Reply buttons?
What was wrong with the old reply editor?
