Editing Topic Titles

Post by NewcastleFalcon »

Has the ability to edit the "Topic Title" by amending the First Post Header of a thread you have started recently disappeared?

27th October 2017 I amended the P.E. thread title to introduce a new theme as I often do, but now the edit icon isn't available.

Happy to amend my activity, and start new threads if required, but it is all the same nonsense gathered together in the one place!

As a side-effect of some configuration changes, the ability to rename old topics has been disabled. I will see if I can fix this, but it will be a week before this happens, as I am currently travelling. In the mean time, ask a moderator to change a topic title if it is really inappropriate.

Thanks for looking into it...its quite useful to freshen up that particular thread, and the POTD thread to encourage a bit of participation with a bit of, dare I say it.....clickbait! :-D
