Hi, I wonder why I can't edit comments for what seems to be older hubs. A yellow box immediately appears, instead of the edit box, when I click on edit. I don't have this problem with newer hubs, or with Q&A.
The spacing with sparrowlet's comment is really weird! But what you are referring to is that you cannot edit comments you have left on others' Hubs, yes?
This is the case because comments one leaves on another's Hubs can only be edited right after they are left (I think there is, approximately, a five minute window).
Hi Simone, I understand the time limit. (Sometimes it is 10 minutes and sometimes 5, when you are commenting on a comment.) I get that yellow box when I read back and try to edit, as soon as I post. So far, it's with a few older hubs. I don't have this problem with new hubs.
Can you provide the title and/or URL for a specific Hub in which you are experiencing the issue?
Matthew Meyer, I remember the hub, "How to Memorize Ayahs from the Qur'an". Can't remember the other one. Just had another problem with "Tips For New Bloggers & Online Writers. Get Traffic, Improve SEO and Avoid Newbie Mistakes!" Can't edit immediately after posting. This one has no yellow box, but the cursor inside the edit box disappears.

Thanks for the example.
This is a known issues that is affecting a small subset of Hubs.
I have forwarded these further examples to our engineering team.

I've come across a hub, now and then, without a comment section. Is this a choice made by the author? If so, why?

I was quite stunned a week or more ago when someone made a statement on one of my hubs that she had commented twice and I had snubbed her by not replying. Her comment had been particularly flattering, and probably...
