Hi
Immediately after my initial post (with poor spelling), unable to find an "Edit Post" facility Or even "Delete (Logged-on User's) Post". Is that device hosted here or might it be added to a 'wish list' ?

Also, many other Forums (Fora ?) have a "Preview" facility before submitting a post.

Third suggestion is a Topic that covers "Forum management and etiquette"  Including any limitations on the size of images and attachments.

Not burning issues I know but, from experience on other sites, those facilities do contribute to good practice.

Thanks Spike-  all good suggestions and will look into the technical ones. There is a rather obscure icon top right of every post that allows editing for a brief period but that isn’t good enough.

 

I haven’t found a formal limit on size of attachments but did struggle to get 22Mb to upload! I will see if I can be more precise.

Hi Spike

Bit of a bodge, let me know what you think:

I have removed the time limit on editing/ deleting your own posts. I have made the spanner bigger, black on a red background. And added an FAQ.

Preview is looking difficult- there are standard preview WP plugins, but they may well not work with the main forum plugin (the rule is don't have two plugins playing in the same area).

Let me know what you think.

All good stuff.  If it works, it's not a bodge.

The edit thing now spotted.  No particular views about the preview but can't allow plugins to interbreed.

Not found FAQ yet but I'll go seek.  [Edit:  The "How to" under "Help" answers most questions of that nature.]

I learnt at uni 40 years ago that I am a bodge programer.. By FAQ I meant the how to help section.
