Unable To Edit Thread Titles

    Something I noticed since I upgraded to 1.3.3 - I can no longer get thread titles to edit. I make the changes, hit save, and it stays how it was. This happens in the forum view and within the thread from the Thread Tools menu.

    Do you have any add-ons installed?

    Try disabling them all and testing again.

    I have no issues editing thread titles here or on my own forums.

    I did some back searching with a few different searches and found out what it was. I have: Automatically Adjust Case of Discussion Titles - Title Case : selected as an option. Prior to 1.3.3 this being selected didn't cause any issue with editing titles after the fact. Has something changed?

    That also works for me, for both title and sentence case.

    Hmmm. Now that's just weird. I suppose I'll just leave it off. I really don't feel like turning off all my add-ons and testing this out.

    You do have a test site that you can do this on, surely? Not really a hardship to find the add-on causing this issue and could potentially be causing other problems you haven't yet come across.

    I am not having any issues with this either

    I do but I'm just too busy at the moment. I'll get around to it at some point. I can always go in and capitalize a thread title in 10 seconds.

    You can check, within 10 seconds, whether it is an add-on or not.

    Edit your library/config.php file and add:

    $config['enableListeners'] = false;
    Then try.

    That disables add-on listeners, so effectively the add-ons are more or less disabled. If it still happens, then it's not an add-on. If it doesn't happen, then it is an add-on.

    You could also post your add-on list here. I'm sure there's only a finite number of add-ons you have installed that could be causing problems there.

    I had a thought (shocking, I know): I was trying to edit the title after the fact to capitalize the second word of a hyphenated word. So, Bob-jones into Bob-Jones. But the system wouldn't allow it. Could it be that the system considers that one word and adding in the capitalization of the second word would effectively go against the 'Capitalize Every Word' system setting?

    @Chris D Thanks, that sure seems like a nifty time saver. I'll give that a shot when I get a second. Here's my add-on list:

    I'd say it's probably not designed to capitalize "Jones" in this case. And I've tested it locally and it doesn't capitalise "Jones" for me either.

    This is just how the PHP developers have designed the ucwords function to work, so it's out of XenForo's hands really. They could add extra logic into this title case adjustment, but there would be an infinite number of combinations of desired behaviour depending on the exact context of the title.

    You can force the capitalisation of Jones in this case by typing Bob - Jones

    Interesting. In the other instance I had of this a while back, I believe it was the same type of situation. I find it odd that you can't force override that, but its not that big of a deal in the scheme of things.
