  • Allowing posts to be edited until thread replied to

    Did a search, couldn't seem to find an answer.

    Is it possible to allow a member to edit a message they have posted (up until the usual admin selected time limit), until another post appears in that thread? I couldn't immediately see an adminCP option to do this, and wonder if it possibly requires custom code.

    Any advice / thoughts on this? Has anyone implemented such a system?

    Also, if such a system was in place, the original poster could be in the middle of editing their message, when another member starts a reply (maybe quoting that previous message) so a situation could arise with the earlier post showing different content than previously, and also a reply being posted as well.

    Do you mean only allow it to be editted until a reply, then disable the editing ability? If so, this requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at
