    Default How to force the %$#@%ing board to let you edit a post

    So, you made a post, but it's full of random crap from the webpage you're quoting. You want to clean it up, but when you hit edit, the message rectangle is blank.

    Or, you hit preview before making a post, and you can see stuff in the preview that you want to change, but the damned rectangle below is blank.


    What to do:

    Select the text, either in the preview pane or in the post you already made. (you know, hold that mouse button down and drag over the entire thing)
    Then paste that bastard in the blank message rectangle.
    Then mess with it. This usually involves deleting unnecessary crap.
    Then hit submit.

    Ta da!

    It's weird. Sometimes it works and other times there's the stupid blank box.
