Hi. We have had a few forum members asking if they can edit their own posts once they have posted them. IS this an option?

 

Thanks guys 🙂

@alvina, thank you for the reply.

 

I have a question though about a line in your help pages: "You should not allow regular forum users to be able edit/delete their topics and posts whenever they want.". Can I ask why this is and why its recommended?

 

Thanks

You can remove the time limit of editing your own topics and posts by setting according option values 0 in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Topics & Posts admin page:
