    [Forum] Prevent moderators from editing thread titles?

    I'd like to know if there's a way to prevent moderators from editing thread titles.

    My concern is that a mod could have their account hacked and that person could manually start changing titles to make a mess of the forum.

    So for Moderators...

    1. Is there a way to either disable this option or set a time-limit?
    2. Is there a way, short of restoring a earlier db backup, to recover from that scenario?

    Thank you...

    1) If mods can edit a post, then they can edit the title. If you want to specifically not allow them to change the title, then this would require custom coding. If you have some coding skills, the place to ask for help is over at, the modification site.

    2) If you have Post Edit History enabled and they leave an Edited By note next to all their edits, then the title change will show up when you click on the Edited By link and compare the thread now to the thread then.

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