    How to edit a topic title in a thread in Social Groups...

    I can edit the content of the discussion, but I can not change the title of the discussion...

    There is no thread tools which there are in the forum..

    I really do not understand this and I hope that someone want´s to help me..

    Edit the first post. This appears to be the only way. I just tested this and it works. It changes the title of the discussion itself.

      I've tried this Jake... to change the first post ...
      But It will not allowe me to change the title

      I am only allowed to change the content of the post...not the title..

      Mabye you can show me a screenshot of this Jake

      Are there others who have problems with this or is it just me

      As you can see in this picture...there is no place to chance the title..

        That ability might be restricted to the discussion creator, admins, mods, social group creator, etc.

          I am super administrator at my site...and i can do all other task at the site...
          So i should be allowed to chance the title...right ?


          I apologize many times ...

          Under Super Moderator Permissions I have neglected to put the checkmark in "Can Edit Discussion"

          Thank you for your answer Jake and again sorry for that I have taken your time...

            I still can't see where you can change the name of the social group itself. Say if it misspelled or something you would think you should be able to edit it. I can't seem to find that location. Any help would be appreciated.

              Please start your own thread for your issue. Thank you.

                I thought it was the same issue sorry. I figured it out anyway right after I posted.

                  You must go into your admin panel

                  The press "Forums & Moderators" and then "Show All Moderators"

                  Then you press "Edit Permissions" byside your name....

                  Go down to "Social Groups Permissions" and find "Can edit discussion"

                  Select yes and go to the bottom and save...

                  Now you will be able to edit discussion title´s

                    I just want to confirm you can edit discussion title by editing first post title of the discussion. This works on 4.2.1
