Editing and deleting a post
Have you created a post but want to change it in some way? Or do you want to just delete a post entirely? Luckily, there is an edit and delete function that makes changing your posts a piece of cake. Find out how below!
Step 1: Find your post
First, you need to find your post. You can do this by navigating to your user profile.
To find your user profile, tap the More button in the bottom right corner of the app. A menu will pop up, and at the top of this menu, you will see your name and avatar. Tap this and you will be directed to your profile screen. Here, tap the text at the bottom of the screen that reads "View My Posts" - this will direct you to a list of your posts.
Step 2: Tap the drop down arrow
Once you have found your post that you want to edit or delete, tap on the ellipses on the right below the post. Tap on this, and you will see a Pop Up menu with the options Edit post, Delete post, Subscribe/Unsubscribe to Alerts and View My Profile.
To edit your post, simply tap Edit post and an Edit post page will appear. This will look identical to the Create post screen, and allow you to edit the title and body text of the post, the feed the post appears in, and also add/remove images and videos. When you are happy with the changes, tap the checkmark on the top right and your post will update accordingly.
To delete your post, tap the "Delete post" option. A pop up will appear asking you "Are you sure you want to delete this post?", and if you are sure you want to delete it, tap the OK button and the post will be removed.
Keep in mind all media attached to the post, as well as comments and likes on the post will be lost, and that this action cannot be undone so be sure before you delete!
