I'm trying to edit the title to a thread I started in TP Diapers. I notice that some people are able to do this and others not. It lets me edit the post but not the title. Thanks for your help.

There's a time limit on editing of titles and posts. Contact the mod of the board with your request - in this case tnrsmom.

I was wondering this too. All I wanted to do was reflect a reduction in price. All this is doing is encourcing me to start a new thread.

Hm... my thread has been up for over a week and I still can't edit the title. When I go to edit the first post I can edit the title for that post, but somehow it's not the thread title, am I missing something? And yes, on the TP that just encourages starting a new post since you want to be able to let people know that you've reduced prices.

Alexandra, the settings cannot be specified for different forums. It's a boardwide setting. I'm not sure why you can't edit the title though, as I did disable the time limit. Feel free to start a new post. If you need any help just ask tnrsmom. She can delete your old thread if you want to place a new one.

I did disable it when I posted on 12/12. Why it's not working I don't know. Would you please test another more recent thread that you started - a few days old perhaps - and see if you can edit the title?

Just wanted to check back in to say it's still not working. Even on a new thread I started What boggles me is that some appear to be able to edit their titles and others not. I know you're looking into it Cynthia, thanks.

OK, I'm only going by what I'm seeing on the TP so I'm not sure if it goes for all forums, but it appears that actually no one is able to edit their post titles. Everyone is just starting new threads so their title will reflect their update. When I go to edit my post there is a box for the 'title' to edit but whatever I write there only appears as bold in the post title, not the thread title... make sense?

So you can edit your post title but not your thread title. Right?

ahh, that makes sense then, because by default vBulletin has permissions set so members can edit their individual post titles, but only moderators and administrators can edit entire threads in any way (including their titles).

That's true but I don't have it on the default. I have it set to 0 so that there is no time limit for users to edit thread titles.

And I think I found out what the problem is. Would someone please test now? I have it set to be able to edit a thread title that was posted two months back and earlier. Umm, I mean two months back and later.
