Great idea, thanks!
Any intention to expand it to allow forum node selection, so that it only applies on selected forums?

Is this still compatible with the latest xf?
I'm not able edit the first message, even if "Time limit on editing the first post in a thread:" is set to unlimited in the "Node Permission".

Yes it is.

Make sure you have 'Edit post by self' allowed for your user group.

Strange,
Edit post by self is set to Allow, under "User Group Permissions: Registered"
and under "Node Permissions: node name - Registered" the "Time limit on editing the first post in a thread:" is set to "Unlimited".

Check to be sure it's actually set to unlimited and not to inherit in the node.

Also be sure the user doesn't belong to a user group that might be overriding those settings with 'revoke' or 'never'.

You can use 'Analyze Permissions' to find out why it's not working for that user.

Could be this one the cause: Time limit on editing/deleting own posts (minutes): 120

Analyze permissions looks good, at least to me.

No, if the Time limit on editing/deleting own posts hasn't expired then the 'edit' link would be in the first post anyway. The add-on puts the edit link back in the post after that time limit has expired.

Permissions look good and the edit link should be in the first post of a thread.

If you have any other add-ons that might change the first post in a thread, try disabling them to see if they are interfering with this add-on.

Also, check if it is working with the default XenForo style.

Well, it's strange.
I can't make it work. Could be something with the whole xf permission system? Is there a way to reset it? I can't imagine what else could be.

You must have some other add-on that is interfering with the system. You could try rebuilding your caches to see if that helps, but I don't know that it would.

And there's nothing to reset. It's strictly a permission that is added to XenForo. If the permissions are set it should work, unless something else is interfering with it.

OR it could be your browser is showing a cached page and not the newest version with the edit link enabled.

I did a fresh install of 1.5.5(a) to be sure there isn't something different that might have affected the add-on and it works without a problem.

1) I set the edit limit to 5 minutes and created a new thread without the add-on installed...

2) After 5 minutes the edit link disappeared on the first post in the thread...

3) Installed the add-on and set the first post edit time limit to 'unlimited' and the edit link is back on the first post in the thread...

I don't have any resource (AFAIK) that could interfere with this mod.
Clearing and rebuilding caches, trying incognito mode in Chrome was already tested.

The only thing it remains, it's the xf permission system, something disturbed it. I'd like to reset all the permissions to default, but I can't find anything related.

So far as I know, there is no way to set them back to default. That would be a question for the XenForo group. ;)

If you want me to take a look at your system, I'm more than willing to do it. Just send me a temporary admin user name and password by PC. Just be sure the temporary user has full admin permissions.

For everyone's benefit....

Analyze Permissions works with this add-on.
Test Permissions does not work with this add-on.

If you are going to test the system, create a test user on your site to test with. Do not use Test Permissions.

@Snog,

Just to let you know that I've tried this mod – great idea by the way – but I'm having the exact same issues as @loplo and had to uninstall.
When analyzing permissions the 'Final Value' for both 'time' permissions always matched what I expected, even for users with multiple usergroups, but users could not edit the first post.
Just letting you know. (y)
