    How to I get a special User Group permission to allow them to edit their own posts?

    (Please forgive me for asking such a novice question, but for some reason what I thought should work no longer works!)

    Our basic Registered User Group (which we title as Level 1) is governed by what is set in the:

    Admin CP > Settings > Options > Message Posting and Editing Options > Time Limit on Editing of Posts > (Set at 15 minutes)

    But when I establish a new User Group (which we titled as Level 5), and I choose to allow Level 5 members to edit their own, the member still cannot edit their own posts, even though I have turned on their ability in the following:

    Admin CP > Usergroups > Usergroup Manager > Level 5 > Edit Usergroup > Can Edit Own Posts > Yes

    You would need to write a plugin to change the edit time for the usergroup. The option Can Edit Own Posts simply allows them to edit it for $vbulletin->options['edittimelimit'] amount of time.

    Please don't PM or VM me for support - I only help out in the threads.

    If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

      Aside from writing plug-ins - if I understand you correctly, in order for me to correct this by using the VB features in already place, I should do the following?
      • Admin CP > Settings > Options > Message Posting and Editing Options > Time Limit on Editing of Posts > Set at 0 (To allow global permission for all members to edit their posts)


      And then return to each User Group we wish not to have the edit privilege, such as our basic Registered Member, and make sure the following is in place?
      • Admin CP > Usergroups > Usergroup Manager > Registered Member > Edit Usergroup > Can Edit Own Posts > No

      • Admin CP > Usergroups > Usergroup Manager > Level 5 Member > Edit Usergroup > Can Edit Own Posts > Yes

        Pretty much, yes.

        However, it's weird that the edit settings overrule the usergroup settings.. can't imagine why the edit settings aren't usergroup based as well.
