Is it possible to edit the title of a thread? I realize it would break any links. If someone makes a new post then discovers he made a typo or other error in the thread's title, can it be changed? I noticed with EDIT you can change all of the post but don't see the ability to edit the title.
Thank you all. Each of you added to my understanding of this topic.
Once I found the "Thread Tools" selection within the thread, it was easy. I never noticed that option before. I would suggest there should be a way to make this change in the normal "Edit" area of the thread, but I am sure the XF team had their reasons for placing the option where they did.
Sorry for bumping an old thread, so, a normal user can not edit his own thread title -only- ?! It's either he has to be a moderator or giving the permission to manage thread (edit, move, etc.) ? How disturbing. Personally It happens often for me to edit my title in others boards to put a better title, or fixing typos. There is really no solution ?
I'm really sick of finding I can't moderate on my own board.
I am both Admin and Super Moderator. What ELSE do I have to do to edit a ruddy thread title?
There really needs to be an option in the essential board stuff to either split Admin and Moderation or not. I've seen others complaining about this - where you are simply the person in charge overall you don't need this division of tasks. IT just creates frustration at not being able to do your job.
I made myself an Elder because I set an Elders forum to access only Elders. They are my managers and advisers socially but not moderators so they don't have permission to delete stuff. Not software savvy enough.
I've removed that from my own settings.
Then I have to go through giving myself individual permission to access that area. Plus every other area like it which is for a particular usergroup. Ugh.
Surely there is a way for me to hold global override access no matter what restrictions I set on my groups of members?
I thought the usergroup someone belonged to with the highest range of permissions was the one that overrode the others?
For example I have 2 basic usergroups which simply denote location - nearby or faraway from our central point geographically. All members are allocated or ask for, one or the other. But as that is very basic it does have restrictions.
Once a member acquires a higher status with more permissions, doesn't that override the earlier location based one? Because the location usergroups will continue to have their own forums still.
