Permission to override editing time

Post by LukeWCS » Mon Dec 08, 2014 2:51 pm

Hi

For my case i found only topics for 3.0, but not 3.1 so i post here my own topic. First i wrote in 3.0 area, but i think that was not the corect place for a 3.1 request/wish. ;)

I have one forum with a generally edit time limit. But for a few users i need a permision to allow unlimited edits, because this users must update their topics very often.

Is there a Ext in development or exist such an Ext which allow to set this permission?

- Per user (would be great and enough for me)
- Per group (would be a good addition)
- Per forum (would be a also a good addition)

I found also the Mod "Override edit time limit and forum and user limits" but it seems this is no longer supported and it's not available as 3.1 Extension.

Note to moderator: i don't want to crosspost, sorry. You can delete my first post in 3.0 area.

Great that you ask, this is on my list, I need that for my forum too (:
So I'll do that.

Dunno though if I want to to per group configurable edit time, depends on how complicated it would be.
But at least there will be one option to reduce the time and one to overwrite to unlimited edit time or such thing.
Also I will add an ACP option where you can choose that user can edit first posts of topics unlimited. (We needed that)
If you have a specific extension request and you are willing to pay for, you can write me a PM.

Hi Wolfsblvt

That sounds very good! :)

Personally i would be really happy, if i can disable the edit limit for a few users, because they are programers, translators, graphic designers and they must have the possibility to update their topics at any time. My workaround currently is to disable the edit limit as whole, but this isn't a good solution.

Isn't this feature already implemented in phpbb core? I am not quite sure, I have my own modification for my forum for quite a long time.

But if not, I will include that of course (:

That was also my hope, that 3.1 will have this feature. But... no... it isn't implemented.

Can I add my vote for this feature as well.

In my case it's user who post a complaint then remove the info at a later date, making the rest of the thread irrelevant. I'd love to see an option allowing edits for 10 minutes after posting, then no more editing.

Why not just make this a forum permission?

Update: this topic is no longer relevant, gn#36 works on a extension for the right management and we test it currently.

Update to all topic subscribers: look at gn#36's "Customize first post edit permissions".
