ACP->general tab->post settings->Limit editing time:
Limits the time available to edit a new post. Setting the value to 0 disables this behaviour.

Looks like setting this value to 0 disables edits at all. Is there any way to give users unlimited time to edit their posts?

upd: From what I read in other threads, setting it to 0 should allow edits. Some kind of permission problem? But all users have permission to edit their own posts at my forum...

Setting it to 0 disables the feature, users may still edit their posts. You probably have a permission problem.

Well, thanks for confirmation, I guess.
