    I made an error in a comment I made on my own hub in response to a readers comment. Is there a way to edit this comment? It was posted 2 days ago.

      I imagine you can deny the comment and delete it. Then write a new one.

    With respect, Peter, I don't wish to sound pedantic but shouldn't your post be in the "Need Help" forum.  Or made into a question and be in questions?  This is the HubPages Knowledge Exchange forum and you aren't exchanging any knowledge in this case, are you?  You appear to be just asking for help?

        I don't get it.

        I didn't see anyone being "not nice." On the other hand, there is a knowledge component. Is it possible to edit comments? Yes, for a few minutes after leaving them. No, not afterwards.

    You're right. My mistake

    If the comment has been up too long to edit it (which is very shortly within the time you wrote it), all you can do (as far as I know) is "unapprove" your own comment, and then write a new one.  If your original one was the last one anyway, it works out as if nothing had ever happened.  Otherwise, your fixed comment shows up lower down the list.
