Backtalk has built-in tools for editing items and responses. Generally these should not be over-used. In fact, they should almost never be used. If people make mistakes or misstatements, they should just post another response correcting it. If something really needs to be removed, the response can be erased or the item killed.
However, there are rare circumstances where editing items makes sense. You can do so through Backtalk simply by logging in as the conference administrator, and reading the item in question. There should be `Edit' buttons near each response.
This document tells how to use a text editor to edit the raw item files.
