MathsIsFun,

I am unable to delete my posts.

I deleted a certain post by another person, due to a certain reason, and everything worked well. However, when it comes to my posts, I am unable to delete.

Please see posts #12 and #13 here.

Please fix the problem.

I've sometimes been unable to delete posts, but it's always a temporary thing.

Navigate away, then come back and try again.

Why did the vector cross the road?

It wanted to be normal.

Try mathsy's suggestion and see if it works.

I know whats wrong. If you are using Internet Explorer and your post contains [hide] or [math] tags, you wont be able to delete it. I can think of three solutions for this problem.

**Solution 1**

First edit your post to remove all [hide] and/or [math] tags. Then you can delete your post.

**Solution 2**

Switch to Firefox. I can delete posts containing [hide] and/or [math] tags in Firefox, but not in Internet Explorer. If Firefox works for me, I dont see why it shouldnt work for everyone else.

**Solution 3**

Wait for MathIsFun to fix the problem.

Very interesting Jane ... I wonder how that all ties in?

Anyway, yes, you could try simply editing your post to be empty (or almost empty) and then try deleting it. See what happens.
