    Not sure if I got it right, but with this add-on you can make future posts?

    Correct. They will show immediately though.

    I want to make a thread which should go live tomorrow 3pm. I can create that thread now, make a quick edit with this add-on, change the time of that thread and the thread will disappear and will apper tomorrow at 3pm.

    If it is working this way then it is really cool :)

    No, it doesn't work this way unfortunately. You can create the thread with the date of tomorrow at 3pm (you don't need to go back and edit it), but the thread will appear immediately and will just have a future date on it. It will also cause an error if someone tries to reply before tomorrow at 3pm.

    Successfully installed but I don't see an option to edit date. I tried under thread tools but not there.

    I have 1.1 by the way. I also allowed edit date under usergroups.

    Try editing the date of the first post rather than the thread itself.

    I really don't see it. Not in edit and not when selecting post.

    Is there a specific hook this uses to place the edit link? It works in threads but I don't see it in snog's movie database threads. I'm figuring it is missing the hook.

    It is a very simple template modification in the thread_view template. Probably snog's movie database threads use their own template, so template modifications won't work. You might call this a limitation of the template modification system, but then developers should be aware of limitations and try to work within those limitations where possible. I would suggest that you encourage snog to extend the existing template rather than override it completely.

    Seems this add-on doesn't make the appropriate template modifications in 1.1. I'll try and add these as soon as possible. Sorry.

    But it does work with 1.2.x?

    There was no specific compatibility indicated in the original announcement. That's always useful info. :)

    I need something to edit post dates so I can enter lots of old info and not have it take over a forum.

    Yes, it does work in 1.2.

    I installed it but cannot see how to use it.

    It adds a new permission for admins and moderators, so once you set that you should be good to go.

    Hmm I cannot find the new permission under UG Perms or User Perms - is it somewhere else?

    You probably set it in either

    Users >> Administrators >> Add new (or edit existing)

    Users >> Moderators >> Add new (or edit existing)

    That's the area in which you add moderators and admins in XF.

    I'm still not understanding - just not seeing anything that even allows me to set a perm for this addon . . .

    It's under usergroup I believe but doesn't have it's own section.

    Once you set the permission, you are probably able to edit the date within the thread view, or under the thread tools menu, or when you edit the thread.
