Re: Thread title

I guess that means "yes, but it's really got to want to change!"

Cheers,

Sometimes we make a 'gaff' & need to change it.

Re: Thread title

Anyone can change their own thread titles, although there may be a time limit after the original post. After clicking on "Edit" click the "Advanced" option and that brings up the thread title box as well as the main body of text.

I'm not sure that it changes what's on the home page though & that is when I've asked Ian to change it for me in the past.

Re: Thread title

I've just added a thread with lots of photos & the home page won't show my Title edit "(Lots of photos)". http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthre...366#post223366

If someone could do that for me please, it might save someone trying to open up my thread when they didn't want to.

Thanks.

Re: Thread title

In such a case I would use the "Report the post icon" (triangle alongside Post number) at the top right of the post and ask for assistance.

It's quite possible I'm wrong - I often am!

Oh I see, it seems to let the user change the title within the thread but for some reason doesn't apply the change to the home page, which requires a moderator. I learn something new every day!

I've changed it for you, Ross, so it should be OK now.

Thanks John. I thought with my oversight for my thread that it would make a good example to present here.
