Looks like if you edit your own post in the same day, you don't see the note:

Code: Select all

Last edited by XXXX on Mon Aug 06, 2018 10:39 am, edited 3 times in total.
Is it intended to work like this? Can I choose the time between the creation and the editing of the post to make the note appear (I would choose zero)?

This is a pretty drastic change to us, because we use the board to play Fantasy leagues.

It should leave a note if you edit any post that has been replied-to. If you edit your own last-post, it would not.

Has been always like this? Can I change this behaviour?

The idea is to allow you to go in and fix a typo you noticed after submitting without cluttering your post with edit notices. If someone replied to your post and you go back and change your post, the replier would see that you edited after the reply.

It has always been like that, AFAIK.

I understand, not a fan of it. Some board has a time limit (like 5-10 minutes) in addition to this.
Not the end of the world, I can say to the Fantasy sections moderators to insert a post just before the start of the event, to force the note.

Thanks.

Ok then, that's what I wanted to know. Thanks.

I seem to recall a similar discussion previously and it ended up with an extension request, have a search of the extensions dB there may be something there.

Edit: It was this I was thinking of viewtopic.php?p=14035251#p14035251

I found this one, pretty similar, which works on 3.2 (with a little hack):
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... dit_log_2/

Still, saving all the post history it's a bit too much too much for me. Kind of killing a fly with a sledgehammer. :D
I'll probably take a look to those ext to see if I can arrange something more suitable to our scenario by myself.
Cheers
