Clicking title of a topic (in board view) to modify it
« on: November 13, 2017, 04:02:53 AM »
I don't remember how was possible to have the option to click a title of a topic in the board view to modify it! :)

i use the "Edit All Message Titles" mod to change all post titles within a topic.

this may be of interest to you but i am not sure if this is what you want. i use it a lot though and it's one of my favorites !

Double click in the box where a title is in the list of topics.

Little known feature.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

My question started from this feature.
In two other forums i Admin i can do it.
Not in the third one, and i can't understand why :)

Your third forum probably has some JavaScript that breaks it, or the theme doesn't support it. Hard to say without more information.

All the three forum are configured in the exact same way.

Where can I find if I did something wrong with Java?

java is not the same as javascript.

all the forums have the same themes as well as the same mods if any installed?

Yeps, I meant Javascript.

Not all the same, but this third forum hasn't mods that the others forum haven't.

So, what's different between this one and the other two?

I meant, are there themes on this one that aren't on the other?

If you go to the default theme (Curve), do you still have the problem?

I just use Curve for all forums.

I remember that the option of click-to-modify was something not automatic working, but something I had to abilitate.
Maybe I remember bad.

Assuming you don't have any JS issues or conflicts, going to the list of topics in a board and double clicking on the box where the topic title is will turn the title into a text box. Edit away and the click outside the box to save.

This has been a feature certainly since 2.0 and possibly even 1.1. I believe it still works in 2.1.

This only changes the title of the first post. the rest of the posts retain the unedited title.
