  3. With the upgrade to the new forum, tapatalk is not functioning properly and we have had little to no support from them in fixing the problem. That said, the new forum is fully configured to support mobile devices so if you are missing being able to visit TUG on your phone try disabling tapatalk and just using your phone/tablet browser to see the new look!

    I started a thread in the Hilton forum on the 18th with a note that I would keep the list updated in that first post so people can find the info quickly (business centers at HGVCs). Discovered tonight that I can't edit it any more.

    Is there a way around this brief period of time, so I can keep updating the first post? If not, can someone else edit out my note that I'll keep the list updated?

    If no one will assist. Use the copy and past feature to put the context of the old post into a new one then make you submission and submit.

    After 48 hours, you can't edit your post (due to some rash behavior by posters in the past) but the method suggested above is an easy work-around.

    Got it. Except we'd like it to stay as the first post of the thread, which appears to be impossible.

    If you start a new thread by just appending the date- or an 'issue' #, then copy/paste the text from the former one to it, it effectively becomes a new post.

    Eventually old editions would fall off the front page.

    I have no need to do this but I guess posts cannot be removed either?
