Always Can Edit First Post

I’m sorry if this is a dumb question, but I can’t seem to find the option in the admin panel. I can see a post edit time limit. I just want to allow a user to be able to edit the first post in a topic forever. The post is unlocked and it’s only been a day, but the user can’t edit their own post.

Please feel free to close this topic after answering. Thanks!

Did you change the site setting time limits on edit grace period, and how long users can edit their own posts?

I did, but there’s a limit to those grace periods. I just want anyone to be able to edit the first post forever. Only the first post, not others. I mean I ended up just allowing them to edit their own post, but a long-term solution would be to allow anyone to edit their first post, even years later. If this can be set by trust level, it can be nice I think.

Press admin wrench on the first post, select “make wiki” is your other option.


Oh I see, so wikis are always editable. Good to know. I guess that solves the issue then. Thanks!

Update: Making it a wiki post allows any user to edit it. I only want the owner of the first post to be able to edit it forever and only the first post.
