Default The Edit Button

Morning All,

Just a quick question, is the edit button on your own posts only visible for a certain amount of time after the post was made, or is it only visible until someone has replie to it?

I'm sure it used to be available all of the time on all of your posts but now i can't seem to edit some of my posts?
