Thread: Possible to edit a thread title after it has been published?

    Default Possible to edit a thread title after it has been published?

    Is it possible to edit the title of a thread, after the thread has been started?

    I realise belatedly that a thread whose title begins 'Garage Band Theory' is going to make people think it is about the Garage Band musical software, and that is not the case.

    As with posts, there's a 3 hour window to edit content and title which we're long by. To do so you must be in Advanced Mode. We'll sometimes edit a title if it's an obvious typo or needed for clarification.

    You haven't said what it is you want the title to b,e so rather than us taking a guess, you should state the exact desired wording. We'll only change the opening post title though. Replies already made will stay as is.

    Also, anyone that replies to a post can change the title for their individual post in Advanced mode, though that's not recommended. Sometimes it can be useful but typically, not. Most people don't.

    Thanks for the response. I failed to find the way to alter the title even minutes after I posted the thread - but that was my fault, I know. I failed to consider an Advanced mode.

    If it would be possible to simply change it to: Brilliant learning resource from Duke Sharp

    that would be fine. Thanks again.

    OK, but understand it only changes the opening post without showing an "Edited by..." and can only be made under Admin privileges after 3 hours. To change the posts after that will look like we're meddling a bit if we edit those because no one can tell if we've edited content.

    And editing a post must be done within the timeframe?
