Update: I changed some CSS which resulted in making the icon invisible. As I passed the cursor over the area... it became 'visible' again.
Please learn from my mistake! ***
How can I pull this off? Certainly we do not want a standard user to "edit any discussion". Only to edit their own.
In the system, "Comments edit own" is checked.
Also, I notice I cannot edit these replies even as a moderator or administrator although I have those permissions.
