Can I edit my 'How I Did It' post?

It is not possible to edit a 'How I Did It' post, however there is a way to re-post with corrected copy (please note this requires deleting the original post and any replies will be lost).

Copy your post:

  1. Highlight the entire post by clicking the first letter of text and holding down your left mouse button while dragging the cursor over the entire post until it is highlighted.
  2. While the text is still highlighted, copy the text by holding down your keyboard's CTRL and hitting the C key. (You can also right-click the highlighted text and select "copy.") 
  3. You may want to copy your text into a program like Word or Notepad, just to make sure you copied it before you delete the original post. Open up your program of choice and right-click to choose "Paste" from the menu or hold CTRL and then hit V to paste as well.

Delete your post:

  1. Delete your current 'How I Did It' post by moving your mouse pointer over your post until you see a gear icon appear in the lower-right hand corner of the post. Click the gear icon, then click the word "remove" to delete your post.
  2. The 'How I Did It' text box will reappear after refreshing the web page. 

Paste or rewrite your post:

  1. If you made edits while in your text-editing program, highlight the text in that program and copy it first. Otherwise, you can just paste in what you copied earlier from your post in Daily Challenge.
  2. Paste your text into the How I Did It box by holding down CTRL and hitting the V key. (You can also right click your mouse cursor into the empty box and select "paste.")
  3. Edit your post as needed before sharing it.
