    Unfortunately if the member decides to fill in the Edited By field then "Time to Wait Before Starting to Display 'Edited by...'" is ignored.

    What we are asking for is a master switch that removes the Last Edited By field and all automatic functions dealing with this feature.

    OK, finally got it working - that is, to remove the Reason For Editing dialogue when Edit is clicked. Hopefully this doesn't break anything else, but I tested it pretty thoroughly without errors.

    Edit the template postbit_quickedit and make the following changes:

    Change this:

    Code:
    <div>$vbphrase[reason_for_editing]:</div>
       <div><input type="text" class="bginput" name="reason" id="{$editorid}_edit_reason" value="" size="50" maxlength="200" tabindex="1" title="$vbphrase[optional]" /></div>
    to this:

    Code:
    <div></div>
       <div><name="reason" id="{$editorid}_edit_reason" value="" size="50" maxlength="200" tabindex="1" title="$vbphrase[optional]" /></div>
    It works for me However, I really would like to see an AdminCP option to just simply turn it off and on.

    Thanks.

    I can live with a template edit - but from what I've tried so far, it doesn't seem to be possible without breaking other things (such as js errors when Go Advanced is clicked with 'Reason For Editing' dialogue no longer there). It appears to have some tie-in with that button's coding, which I'm unable to find to "fix".

    At this point, if someone is able to provide the details on how to get it removed successfully, I'm all ears

    Thanks.

    I think there have been enough people to warrant a switch for this function to be turned off completely.

    If all the neutral features had options the vBoptions panel would be a mile long. For instance, I like the edit button to be on the left side of the postbit but I don't expect to see an option for it. Some things such as little quirky customizations like this are best left to template edits.

    Why is this edit box even a problem? You're not required to fill it in before submitting.

    I figure if a member wants to indicate they edited their post they can write it in the post.
    Yeah sorry, did not get first what you meant .. you are right

    Or something like this On my forums I don't have this displayed either but I did not remove any code, simply increased this time .

    No utw-mephisto - we're not referring to that feature - but the newly introduct text box when you click on the 'Edit' button (Reason For Editing).

    To different beasts But yeah, I've had that feature for a while too!

    I wish this was a feature too. Many customers have asked that a master switch be added to Admin CP to completely turn off the "Reason for Editing" function.

    Thanks - I was able to remove it in postbit_quickedit template - but then when you click on Go Advanced, you get a Javascript error in the browser and then unable to proceed.

    I removed this from the template:

    Code:
       <div>$vbphrase[reason_for_editing]:</div>
       <div><input type="text" class="bginput" name="reason" id="{$editorid}_edit_reason" value="" size="50" maxlength="200" tabindex="1" title="$vbphrase[optional]" /></div>
    Tried messing with editpost too - but just can't get the thing gone without other errors occuring.

    Would be nice if this was available as an Admin option to turn off & on at will - that's a feature request by the way

    Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Search in Templates

    Search for "reason_for_editing". It returns these templates:

    editpost
    postbit_quickedit
