I see people are editing self-post titles, especially their learning logs or AVOYPs, to add things like “x update added!” like this one:
but I do not seem to be able to edit mine. When I edit the first message of my post, the title text box is disabled. Is there a special permission or a certain experience level to be achieved before that option opens up?
I was able to edit it earlier, but no longer. I added the 3rd installment, I would like to edit it either to take it back to just ‘Tony’s learning log’ or something else but to no avail. Have tried several different ways and several different browsers.
@Socio Thanks James … that is a mighty impressive memory of Community events! You could be right.
What I don’t know is whether or not there is some config setting that would allow the person who posted a Topic to edit their own Title, in the same way that the platform can be set up to allow indefinite editing of the Topic’s First Post.
Hopefully Richard or Lieven will take a look and be able to provide feedback. As just a Mod I don’t have permissions to look at these settings, which Richard and Lieven can do as Site Admins.
Not sure if this might help in unravelling different permissions but I have been able to edit the title of my learning log whilst others haven’t. So it seems the system is still allowing some people, if not all?
I have just gone through all settings for every sub-category in Community Recordings and ensured they allow users unlimited edits to their ‘FIRST POST’. The settings do not mention, so it seems they do not allow, unlimited edits to topic TITLES.
The settings in Learning Logs are set exactly the same.
If title editing has been possible it may have been time restricted and that is not an option we have at our disposal, it may be a Discourse platform feature.
