Why SMF has no TOPIC RENAME option?

Why SMF has no RENAME TOPIC option for moderators? Now, the only way to rename is to MOVE topic and to another forum and, then, back.

Double click on the space immediately to the right of the topic name in the message index.

Yeah, didnt know ether, this was a bit difficult to discover. 

However, I double click next to the topic and I enter the new topic. What I have to do next to save the new topic? I tried to hit enter, escape or click somewhere else...

Thanks

ps: Using smf 2.0 RC3. I hope there is no difference with 1.x

Once you have modified the title - clicking off of it onto another empty space, or pressing enter(or return) should set the title correctly.

At least it still does on SMF 2.0RC3 using chrome and firefox browsers.

Unfortunately it doesn't work for me :(

I use SMF 2.0 RC3 / SimplePortal 2.3.2 using firefox and chrome on Fedora 14

Maybe it is a SimplePortal Issue.

Thanks for the reply :)

Perhaps, could be a theme issue too.

I will try to find out the reason and post back.

You can just go to the first post and edit the title there   :o

Yes you are right. However it would be nice to be able to rename all the posts at once (I dont know if this happens with the double click approach though).

Perhaps, could be a theme issue too.

I changed the theme to the default with out any luck. :(

You know, I just assumed that would change all the posts in the topic, I never noticed it didn't   :-[

The double Click works on my custom theme though   :)

Apparently you need to have quick mod active because the source code seems to access (at least on 2.0 RC5) a form named quickModForm.

Code: [Select]
x[x.length] = 'subject=' + document.forms.quickModForm['subject'].value.replace(/&#/g, "&#").php_to8bit().php_urlencode();
And in my case it doesn't work also ...

There was a plugin that allowed bulk renames of topics (and kept the "Re:" , but it seems is not ported to 2.0).

It's this one: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=384

Meanwhile - for the behavior above - I've checked the code and created a bug report (I'm beta tester).
In the profile, you have to have show quick moderation as checkboxes (not as icons). And then it works - but! - it only renames the first message only .. the server code supports renaming all messages, but the UI (.js files) does not submit the an additional parameter to do so.

This one *is* ported to 2.0 - http://dev.live627.com/index.php?action=mods#65 (it's also on the mod site here but without a bug fix...)
