how do I edit posts!?

I go to edit, it lets me do that but there's no button to save changes or edit etc.

The feature times out. If it enables you to make the edit, then at the bottom of the screen is a "save changes" button. How old a post are you wanting to edit?

Oddly enough, I am having the same issues with some members on another forum where I am an administrator. That site is also using vBulletin. So far, the members responding are all using Windows with IE 11. I am asking those members to delete cookies & see if that helps. I'd be interested to know what you're using.
So far, those of us using Windows with Chrome aren't having an issue.

There's a time limit as to how long a member can edit. Not long. This is in place to prevent spammer's from coming back and adding links or other ads.

If you immediately attempt to edit, make a quick change and then find there is no means of saving, I would try a different browser.

Thanks. It must be because I am using IE11. I was trying to edit only 1 minute-old posts or day-old or a few-minutes. There's no button with IE11 that says Go Advance or Save Changes etc etc.

There shouldn't be any issues with editing your post that is only 5-10 minutes old [I'm not sure what the cut off point is] but you won't be able to edit it your post the next day.

I really like Firefox, you might have to beat me to get me to go back to IE
