Continuing the discussion from Accidental double tap on post moderation deleted the post:

I’d like to be able to edit the topic’s title as well as its content, before letting it post to the forum

All in one go?

Though I can see how this would be nice, I think it’s edge-case enough where the status quo is OK
i.e, edit the post and the category / title - tags separately

Is it the current process that big of and that common of a problem for you?
Or am I missing what you’re saying?

If the post is a reply, it’s a non-issue.

When the post will start a topic, it would be better to be able to add clarity/fix typo’s before it hits the forum (and all the subsequent emails, which can’t be corrected at a later time.)

This is why emails are always delayed by 5 minutes, so people posting have a chance to do final edits. There is a site setting for it as I recall…

I can’t tell if your answer means No, don't want to add it , Yes, but it's not high priority, or something different.

(Allen - Watchman Monitoring) #6

It’s been a while, so it wasn’t high priority…

Is being able to edit the subject line of a new post something we can hope to see?
