To edit your forum posts click on the "modify" link at the right, top place of the corresponding post.

Note that users can only edit and delete their own posts.

You should see the editing links similar to the below example:

PASAHA, I've been trying to understand this tip, but apparently I need more help.

I don't see the "modify" link on my posts.  Is there something I need to change in my set-up options in order to see  it?

Not really... PM me your accounts username and password, and I will check it out... Perhaps something is wrong with the account itself...

Ok it looks like we have an issue with user editing functions at the forum, I will look in to it deeper, and will introduce a fix, just need some time to do this, as I have a lot going on right now...

Stay tuned, I will announce, when it will be fixed right in this post.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

I knew something wasn't working.

Glad you're on it.

Ok, the fix is now up, so it should work as expected:

Users are able to edit their own posts only, and remove their posts, but users can not remove the first post of a thread.

The fix I have introduced is cookie based, so tell me if you find the forum slower than before, or any other abnormalities for that matter...

Cheers!! ;D

Also I added the ability for users to Lock/Unlock their own topics, - one would lock a topic it he/she dont wish to receive any replies to that thread, the "Lock Topic" button is located on the bottom, left side beneath the thread.

Enjoy ;)

Well, I guess if no one is replying to this one would mean that the issue is gone..??
