Okay the five minute clock for editing a post starts at the moment you click “Submit.” Does the board software permit this clock to be reset to five minutes each time you click “Save” from the edit window?
I don’t have access to the admin control panel, but I think the only option is how long to set the timeout value. I don’t believe there is an option to make it behave the way you want it to behave.
If you run into this being an issue fairly frequently, you might want to try composing your reply in notepad or whatever handy-dandy word processors is on your system/device, then copy and paste it once you are certain you have all of your edits done.
It’s five minutes one time, period. It does not renew or reset if you further revise your posting after you’ve hit the button.
