Can't edit my own post.

I just tried to edit my question on Outdoors (https://outdoors.codidact.com/posts/279707), but the "Edit" button at the bottom of the post is missing. Here is a screen shot:


Microsoft Edge
Windows 10


I just noticed that "Suggest Edit" is missing for me on all questions in all sites that I'm not a mod of. I was able to edit this by adding "/edit" to the URL of the question.

Why does this post require moderator attention?

How strange! What happens if you go to the edit URL directly? (Trying to figure out if you can edit but there's a UI weirdness or if you can't edit at all.) Does it happen on any other posts or just that one? Monica Cellio‭ 5 months ago

@Monica: I clicked on the "edit URL" link in your comment, and was able to edit the question. So the system allows me to edit, but isn't showing the edit button for some reason. Strange indeed. I looked around, and this bug seems to apply to all my questions on sites where I'm not a mod. I don't see an edit button on old questions I've asked here either, like https://meta.codidact.com/posts/276581. Olin Lathrop‭ 5 months ago

There is no edit button shown to me on this question either. Olin Lathrop‭ 5 months ago

Possibly the same cause as https://meta.codidact.com/posts/279896 ? Moshi‭ 5 months ago

Fixed now. Sorry for the disruption. Monica Cellio‭ 5 months ago
