Fixed "Edit own thread title" permission is badly named


Well-known member
I think Edit own thread, would make me think that I could edit all post in the thread.

I would like that kind of permission for a blog-like forum.

Maybe something like "Edit own thread start" would be better?

I think "Edit own thread" is sufficient. If it's a little misleading for some, they'll quickly learn better.

Thank you for reporting this issue, it has now been resolved. We are aiming to include any changes that have been made in a future XF release (2.2.7).

Change log:
Change "Edit own thread title" permission to "Edit own thread" as this permission allows multiple thread properties to be edited.
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.

We've changed this now but note that the permission ID is still editOwnThreadTitle as changing permission IDs can be a little bit dicey given that there could be add-ons who rely on that permission currently to be named in that way.

The ID could be changed in a future version.
