Edit Post and a Time Limit Option

Post by Mike40 »

Hello - I notice there's an option to prevent user's from deleting their own posts. However, if I want to provide Edit rights then there's nothing to stop a user from "blanking" out their post or completely changing the content. Is there an option to allow them to edit a post for say 24 hours or maybe until there is a reply to the post? It seems like allowing Edits until there is a reply would be a good feature if it does not already exist.

There it was a MOD for 3.0.x as for information.
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/ ... er_limits/

Best bet is to open an extension request (port) in the Extension requests forum, here.

That's already builtin option - goto your acp and look in "posting" - "Post settings"

Is it on a per user/forum basis?
I recall I made an extension MOD for that for phpBB2.

No, that's a global options for all except moderators

There is a extension, but it's only verified for 3.1: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... stpostedit

That seems to be a bit different though against what the 3.0.x MOD does.
Adds a new user and a forum permission to override the post edit time limit, also gives the ability of editing time limit settings per forum or user
(new user?.. may be a typo?)

Interesting. :geek:

Should be read as
Adds a new user ... permission
Adds a new ... forum permission
