The concept is quite simple: Users with the AUTH_FOKI permission see an additional checkbox below the posting textarea which says "This post may be edited by other users". By default this permission is given to everyone who can post in the forum. If this checkbox is checked the post can be changed by all users with the AUTH_FOKI_EDIT permission, defaults to all users who can read.
These posts have a revision history, you can diff between different versions and return to old versions of a post. A little line below the post tells the user that he is allowed and encouraged to edit this post.
The page index containing all foki-posts in alphabetical order can be reached via the top menu icon. The page index includes a search for foki-posts. The MOD also adds a new selection to the search page so you can select whether you want to search in foki-posts only.
On the top right of the index page (below "View posts since last visit" and "View your posts") you can find the "Foki recent changes" which lists all pages which were edited lately.
Inside every forum there is a "Foki index" and "Foki recent changes" link above "Mark all topics read" to get to the index/recent changes for only that specific forum.
Please report bugs to me at this topic. Thank you.
