Why can't we edit our thread 'titles'?
 
We've had an 'EE-1 ot sight' in 'Equipment Hire' since June, not me I may add.

Agree, occasionally frustrating when a spello goes un-noticed...……...:confused:

Did you mean the user who created a thread edit the thread title?

The user that created the post needs to Edit the first post [1] in the thread, then select Go Advanced and then an editable thread title will appear in a box above the editable text of the post, change, then Save Changes.

For another user to change the title from post #1 they would require Admin privileges.

[1] Been a few years since I used this forum software, but editing the thread title part way through the thread probably renames it from that point onwards. Which means another user posting on a thread about ot sights might change it to dot sights.

You can update the thread title using the "Advanced" edit option. However, the thread title that appears in the forum thread listings is not updated - it's set once when the thread is created. Other forums running vBulletin don't seem to have this problem so I'm guessing it's either an old version being run here or a bug introduced during customisation.

Once the "Thread Title" has been posted into the forum, it requires an Admin. to change it. No big deal, they usually do it willingly but need to be asked.

The real truth is: If we could do everything in the forum ourselves, Mods would be redundant :D
