    Editing the text of Subject in a post

    it would be great to have a way to correct the Subject text in a post we create. Sometimes auto-correct changes it when "saved", or we just want to change it.

    Isn't that what the "EDIT" box is for under your message.
    Only problem is in most cases you've sent, in my case mostly gibberish, the message already and are hoping you fix the problem before the message is read by others.

      smokin fool The problem is that the OP cannot edit the text of the Subject line that they post under. So, any mistake in the Subject cannot be "edited".

    You should be able to edit the Subject text of the Thread (OP).

      raywjohnson Nope, no can do. As Panhead John states below, maybe it can be done in the first few seconds, but once it appears to "indexed", it cannot be touched by us mere mortals.

    I've never been able to do this as the title is always greyed out on the edit screen.

      Note that us mere mortals also don't get the Advanced Options choice. Mods have always been able to edit titles, not us lowly peons. :-)

      GolfGeezer pkadare is correct. Huskee told me a while back that only the mods can edit OR delete a post. Once you post it yourself, you do have a very brief period of time you can make an edit to the “title”. Once posted, you might have less than a minute that you can make an edit to the title. But I’m just guessing at that time frame. Huskee also mentioned that if you want an edit made to your title, feel free to message or PM a moderator and they will do it for you. Hope this helps.

      Sorry about that! I thought I checked the permissions for this. I gave bad info. As Huskee says below, if you need a title fixed, let one of the mods know.

    You can't edit a post's title, because you could potentially ruin a valuable topic that has lots of great information by re-titling it maliciously. For the same reason you cannot delete a topic that you've started. You could lose tons of good info, let's say if you got mad at someone and deleted the whole string. At least I assume this is why that limitation is in place.

    You can however edit anything inside the body of your posts & comments, and you can delete you own individual replies & comments.

    If you need a typo corrected in a topic's title, just @ one of the mods.

      Glad I found this. I added a detailed write up to a post I created seeking advice on SVQ & QVQ, and wanted to update the subject to reflect the thread was updated with the detailed results of the cook, but could not. Now I understand why.

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
