  • Editing Thread Titles

    I've noticed that only the administrators can edit thread titles and not the members or moderators. Does anybody know why?

    Can Edit Threads is a moderator permission that is set when you assign a moderator. The default should be Yes in a forum that the moderator is assigned to. You can edit these settings under "Forums & Moderators -> Show All Moderators".

      It says they can, but they are saying that they can't. The super moderators can. But the members can't. I remember in an older version of vBulletin the members were allowed to edit their own thread titles.

        There is an option in vbulletin options which puts a time limit on how long thread titles can be edited. You may want to check that.

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

          Well the mods and members can edit their threads, but the edited title doesn't show up in the forum part.

            You need to use Thread Tools:

            Thread Tools -> Edit Thread

            Also please note this setting:

            Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Message Posting and Editing Options -> Time Limit on Editing of Thread Title


            If you edit your post outside of this time limit, the thread title won't be updated.

              I did that and it's still not working. The members aren't able to edit thier threads right after they've posted it. The members and moderators' permissions are set so they are allowed to edit their own threads.

                If you are within this time limit then you can edit the thread title by editing the first post in the thread:

                Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Message Posting and Editing Options -> Time Limit on Editing of Thread Title

                Note that a value of 0 does not make it unlimited, but rather it makes it so users can never edit their thread titles. If you want it effectively unlimited then you need to set it to a huge number, like 999999999.

                Otherwise admins and mods can use the Edit Thread option from the Thread Tools menu. Regular users cannot access this option.

                    Is there a reason why users can't change the title (of thread they have created) themselves after that time limit? Is that "workaround" (setting that time limit to a huge number) safe?

                    I'm just wondering if that was possible in earlier versions why is it not anymore? I guess there must be a reason for that ...?

                      No it wasn't possible in earlier versions. Nothing has changed.
