Just tried to post a new thread, I could not edit the Subject line. Which meant I could not post my post. I was logged in.

So, threadjack.

Specifically, What's This Feature?

You seem to be asking about a forum feature -- and not really following up on the cooking recipes topic. So, I will split off your post to a new topic for you.

You posted this thread just fine so we know it isn't your browser. What forum was the problem in? Is it reproducable?

It's Win 8.1 on an HP laptop purchased early November 2013, Chrome browser. I've started lots of threads here. Last night I couldn't click into the Subject: line. Just flat out couldn't. As I couldn't make a subject I couldn't create a new thread. I could click into the thread body. So I threadjacked, more to record I had an odd issue than anything.

Ahh, that thread is a week old. You tried to edit it yesterday. There is a time limit on when you are allowed to edit posts, which is well less than a week. So the feature has to do with preventing people from posting, getting responses, then utterly changing the content of the original post to make the follow ups meaningless.
