I have tried to edit and/or delete my comments on hubs for the past two days, and this feature will not allow me to do so. I have tried on two separate computers to no avail. I think this is likely an error that needs attention.
Sorry you are having problems with comments.
Are you talking about comments you posted to your Hubs or to the Hub of other authors?
Comments can be edited or removed on the Hubs of other authors for a very limited amount of time.
If you are asking about comments on one of your Hubs, please email the details (Hub URL and title, specific comment, what you are trying to do, what happens, what browsers and browser versions you are using, etc.) to email@example.com and we can look into it further.
It is the comments I have posted on other HUBs. After I click to edit or delete a comment I've posted the editor will come on, but will not allow me to edit. I also have not been able to delete my comments. I have attempted this on several occasions within the allotted edit time. Thank you for your help!
I just logged in as you using Chrome in Windows and was able to post a comment to a Hub, edit it several times, and delete it all within the allowed 5 minute period.
If you tried to edit or delete the post within 5 minutes of posting, then it sounds like there may be an issue with your browser or computer.
You can try these general trouble shooting steps.
1. Clear your browser cache
2. Check for any install any browser or OS updates.
3. Reboot your computer.
4. Reset any network hardware (cable modems, DSL devices, routers, switches, etc)
5. Try another browser like Firefox, Chrome, or Opera.
Let us know if the issue persists after these steps.
Thank you Matthew,
I'm glad the problem is not system-wide. I have been having some minor problems with my wifi adapter. I had no idea it would cause this particular problem since I've had no issues editing on other pages. I will try all of your suggestions, and will switch my adapter out to see if that works.
I am very grateful that you tested this for me, and for your help as always.
All The Best,

Well, it is working, but only for some hubs and not others. is there an individual setting somewhere I've missed?I'm getting notifications of 3 or 4 hub comments a day so thought all was well.Then I discover over 50 new comments on one hub over the last 7 days that I wasn't notified of.How many...

I've left two long winded comments in the past few minutes and neither of them posted. Once I hit Post Comment, it just took me back to the top of the hub after it acted like it was working. Anyone else?

Every time I try to post a comment, the page flips up to the top and, when I scroll back down, the comment is still there, unposted. I've cleaned my cache, tried a different browser but no luck.

A couple of times this week, after leaving a comment on someone's hub, I noticed a typo, and when I tried to edit the comment (well within the allotted time frame), the function would not work.The cursor would not move into the comment box, to allow the change to be made; the 'save change' button...

How important is it to have a comment section on your hubs, or How important is it to respond?I was going through some of the hubs that belong to some of the top paid hubbers ( info found on the success story page) and a lot of those people do not respond to comments. In fact, many of their...

I am not sure if this has been mentioned before as I do not regularly follow the forums. I know some time back we got rid of the "Bookmark This Hub" feature on HubPages because statistically, most Hubbers didn't use it and it was taking up valuable space. Here's a new idea (I hope): Add a...
