As I said, it was not there. I will attempt to find it with this post. But with the post I attempted to delete and provided a link to was less than one minute old. I cross-posted with another person saying the same thing at the same time, hence the desire to delete. It had nothing to do with a problem with what I had to say.

Anyway, after I post this I will immediately try to find the 'alleged' delete button and use my snipping tool to capture what I see. I will then post what shows on my screen.

ETA:

Nope, it's not there less than one minute later.



Not finding it with the first Edit option, I moved to Advanced and there is still no Delete Button.



ETA again: This time I came back again looking to see if the Button is Hidden and that perhaps I could delete by clicking in a spot where I think the Delete Button might be. As far as I can tell, it is not Hidden either. Clicking around to the Left of the Edit Button doesn't do anything. And Clicking on the Edit Button just takes me to the Advanced screen seen above in the second picture.

One more test to see if the Delete Button is hidden under another button. I will try to use the Go Advanced button to see if it works to delete this particular post.

ETA: No, that doesn't do it either. It just goes to the same screen shown in the second picture in my above post. And the Cancel Button works properly, too.

Hmmm, let me check.

ETA: It is there at the bottom, Save, Go Advanced, Delete, Cancel

Just out of curiosity, what device are you using to read and post right now?

A Windows 10 PC (laptop.) It's the same one I've used before the button disappeared. I have not updated any software. We all seemed to have the button disappear at more or less the same time. But you had it re-appear and for me it has never re-appeared.

Testing from a different browser, even though I use FF almost exclusively, I thought I'd see if it looks different with another browser.

ETA: NO, it looks exactly the same. No Delete button here either.

If you can't delete the message, just edit it and backspace until what you want to erase is deleted. You can contact us and we will take care of deleting the blank message box. That doesn't fix the delete button for some of you, but it is all I can do at this time.

Testing delete (I don't think I have it either, so this post is to check) ...

On Windows, I don't have a delete button (I ran the two tests from Earlene's screen shots - one from front page and a look in advanced - no delete). Off to check a mac device ...

Mac device ... no delete.

Testing from an iMac...

ETA: No delete button. I actually deleted the above in "Edit" mode, the page was blank, I went away, and when I came back, there it was, undeleted

ETA: Okay, so you have to delete the text, then type in "deleted", then choose "Save" to get it gone.
