Hi mowcius,

Would be good to know what this time period is


Yes it would :D


Lolz  ;D

Well, I can see that my second post in this thread still has a "Modify" button, so this is not about "last post".
EDIT: yes, just to confirm - at this time, both my Reply #3 and Reply#5 (this one) have a "Modify" button..

Here is a relevant quote I found from "YaBB Support Codex - Advanced Settings":
Quote

Time Lock

Limit time allowed to modify posts?
If checked, limits the time that users have to modify their posts.

Time limit for modifying posts (in days)
Specifies the time limit for users to modify their posts. (The modify limit must be enabled)

Limit time allowed to delete posts?
If checked, limits the time that users have to delete their posts.

Time limit for deleting posts (in days)
Specifies the time limit for users to delete their posts. (The delete limit must be enabled)


So, I guess, only thing needed is for an admin to log on to "Advanced Settings" of this forum, and post the time limits for modifying and deleting posts here :) (or, if they are visible through a link somewhere, maybe post that link instead..)  

Cheers!

Yeah well we'll just have to wait and see if anyone sees this thread and responds.

Yes, this is a big problem, especially for editing code. I don't see the harm in allowing people to edit their posts, regardless of how old they are. At worst you can make a mandatory "last edited at XXXX" message appear.

Edit - I found a way to modify older posts even if there is no button. Simply submit this URL:

Code: [Select]
http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?board=dev;action=modify;message=XX;thread=YYYYYYYYYY

where XX is the number of your message in the thread (with the first post being number 0 of course), and YYYYYYYYYY is the thread number. As long as you own the post, you can modify it.

Nice.

I will try that and note it down.

An Error Has Occurred!

Error: The Forum Admin has set a time limit of 1 day(s) to modify Posts. This Post may not be altered.


Hmm, looks like it don't work...

So the time limit is a day (apparently). I will remember that.
