Solved Posting messages "Edit" function - Any settings to customise?

Post by CruizingComet on May 5th 2011, 3:58 pm

Can anyone confirm if there are any options to customize the "Edit" feature in members posts?

We have had an incident where a member has gone to every post he has created it, edited the content and just typed *closed* into every thread.

As a result of this we have had to delete the entire threads (he created) and the replies that members had taken the time and trouble to offer assistance and reply.

Is there anyway we can set the forum up so a member has a limited time window available where the post can only be edited, for say the first 24hrs?

Thanks for any advice or assistance in advance

Very Happy

Hi, try going to:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. General Tab
3. Configuration (on the left, under Messages and e-mails)
4. Set it in the field "Post edit duration limit for a member"
