When posting a new topic in Google Groups, I made a few misleading typos that I wanted to correct, but I couldn't find a way to edit the post. Is it possible to edit a post in Google Groups (in case I need to correct something in the post?)

If you are the owner of the group then do the following:

You need to go to Manage → Permission → Moderation permission. There change the Edit other's post and Own Post. Save.

If you are not the owner, ask the owner to enable edits by following the steps above.

Without the moderation permission looks like the only option we have is to delete the old post and re-create it.. – ccpizza Nov 7 '15 at 11:28

Once the message is posted it cannot be edited. https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/gmail-generation/7W51BDOBWIg

This message was posted in 2006 - has anything changed since then? – Anderson Green Nov 13 '12 at 18:27
Also, I think I've found an exception to this limitation - it appears that it's possible to edit posts in the Chromebook Central group. groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/chromebook-central/aSv3WovEigk – Anderson Green Nov 13 '12 at 18:30
