User not able to edit previous topic

(Patrick Klug) #1

Over on our forum a user reports that he is no longer able to edit his own post:

I just tested this (impersonating the user) and can confirm that the ‘edit’ button in the topic toolbar is simply not showing up.

Is there a known bug? Any tips on how we can resolve this?

Check your Edit Window in the Admin > Settings > Posting area.

Also check if the post was flagged (as editing the post is delayed 10 minutes when a flag is entered)

I didn’t realize that there was a post edit time limit. Set it to forever and it’s working now.
