Allow users to del/edit own posts?

Post by robhol »

I've done some searching without results, so I'll ask here instead.
How do I set privs up to allow all users to edit and delete their own posts?

Users cannot delete their posts if there is a reply to it, no matter what the settings in phpBB v2. If you enable user deletions, it is only going to work if their post is the last one on the topic.

What permissions do you have set for the forums?
In "Simple mode", set to "registered" will let all registered members post.
In "Advanced" mode, "Post" and "Delete" should both be set to "Reg".

I used to have it that way, but then anyone could edit anything...
