    Unfortunately, you can’t. There’s an hour window that’s open for editing, but after that, you can’t edit a post.

    I think what people often do in the situation you describe is to quote their own post and add the new info on the end. Clumsy, I know, but it’s about the only way to manage it.

    Another option is to copy and paste your original post into a program like Word or Notes. Edit it in there and then copy it to post an update. That prevents you from having to find your previous post (a hassle on the app).

    I'm on the app. The above post describes how I do it.

    I do a straight copy/paste without bothering with another program. Literally highlight last post, copy, go to comment box, paste, add new entry, post.
