A couple of times, I have wanted to delete posts, because I no longer needed an answer. When I click on 'delete', I get a screen that tells me I am not logged on or am not authorized to edit my post. So I fill in 'UserName' and 'Password', only to be told I am not logged on or am not authorized to edit my post.
How do I fix this so I can delete a post?

A few reasons really. The biggie is that a lot of people used to delete their post after getting an answer. I want this forum to be an archive of past answers, so I stopped allowing people to delete. I can still delete posts though
