Solved Edit option

Post by Geezer on Sat 15 Oct - 15:57

First topic message reminder :

My posters dont have the " Edit " option in thier posts , I fix it in the Admin Panel and it works once until you update the page then it disapears . I am the only one ( not as Adimin as a member ) who has this option . Any ideas , cheers

Maybe I can help:

Geezer is saying when a member goes to a their posts, they see the Edit button, but if they reload the page, the Edit button is gone.

Well you got that right Sig . I,m not being rude or funny but I think I have explained it pretty good . It shows on the screen shot that there is NO edit button next to the " Quote " button scratch

This a strange problem, heh. Razz

The edit button works fine for me even when I reload the page. I will ask Sanket to check it as well.

Even after refreshing the page for 5 times, the edit option was still present. I don't see any problem with it.

Yes I have had a few complaints since starting this Chat Forum . I know as Admin I see all the edit options for all members and if I want to I can edit their posts but why are members complaining that they cant edit thier posts

Posting Consecutively:Posting consecutively is not tolerated unless separated by 24 hours since the last post. In future, please use the edit button. Wink

I see. Well, this may be quite silly, but have you actually allowed members to edit their posts in the permissions section? Razz

How will the other posters have a edit button on a admins posts. They will only have the edit button on their post. Shocked

He means that while logged in as Geezer his posts has the edit button, but other members' posts and even the administators' posts do not have the edit button.

Geezer is not the admin account as far as i see on his forum. Thats the reason he cannot see the edit thing for other's posts.

You think.. hahaha

Not unless he makes Geezer account as a moderator.

Geezer only mods and admin will see the edit button for all post.
If you are a regular member you do not have the ability to see nor edit any other members post.
Member's can only see the edit button and be able to edit their own post,
unless you do not have the permissions set to allow them. to (which you do) Smile

Make sense now,
I mean you cant have regular members have the ability to edit other members post.
That would be a disaster.. affraid

To edit what?
Their post or other members?

Once again they will not be able to edit
Other members post unless they are mods.
If they can not edit their own post,
Then you have to set permissions for the forums
To allow them.

I see. Well, I've just visited your forum again and I've taken a look at the 'Testing Testing' topic. It looks like your members are saying that they can see the edit button just fine.

The 'some members' tells me that you should check the permissions for ALL forums just in case you have some that allows members to edit their posts and some that don't. Wink

Hello,

Sounds like the permissions to edit your own post isn't activated for each section. By having few users saying they can and can't makes it seem like that. Please go through your permissions for each section.
