    Help! I'm not sure where to ask this question. Hope this is the right place. I recently posted a question and somehow it got posted twice. How can I remove the extra post?? Thanks

    If you go back into the post you want to delete...it gives you the option at the bottom of the box that the post is in to edit or delete.

    When I go back into the post, I can see "edit" but not "delete". Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place?? If I choose edit, there still doesn't seem to be a delete option. I think I might need more help with this. Thanks!!

    You can not delete a post if it is the first in the subject. I'm sure a moderator will find it and delete it for you

    About two weeks ago DELETE was removed from the first post, due to people getting thier answer then deleteing the entire thread. This way if helpful sudjestions are within a thread the first poster can not delete the entire thread. If you really need one deleted contact moderators, and they can do it for you if it is just a duel post, you could edit the first to say ignor, look at other post, or just let it go and before long it will be out of new post range anyhow.
