If we're talking about message index, doesn't work on my 2.0 test install.


yes we are, double click on the area where the subject is and you should get a text box where you can edit the title.

Workaround : moving the topic to another board will give you the options of changing its title plus the titles of all posts in that topic. Once done, move the topic back to its original board.   :)

Thing is, that could generate a lot of notifications if the topic has subscribers watching it.

Doesn't happen on any of my 2.0/2.1 installs in IE11 or FF56.

Interesting. Works on my regular forum with a multitude of mods but not on my test one. (Firefox)

As far as I remember, quick moderation must be enabled for this to work. Try setting quick moderation to checkboxes in your Look and Layout settings.

That might be it, I never go on an SMF where I don't change this settting. It's even useful for non moderators because then they can mark topics read in bulk without marking all read.
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.

i have mine set to icons and it works without issue.

changed to none and the feature stops working, changed back to icons and it works again.

Works for me if set to checkboxes or icons.  Doesn't make much sense to have this feature hidden in a profile setting. :P

Honestly I'd campaign for removing the choice and mandating checkboxes be on for everyone all the time but that's massively controversial and against the spirit of the project or something.

That's definitely it (checkboxes or icons). Thanks.

Agreed. Any reason for that?

Could have it on as default, at least. Need to check if it isn't already on 2.1, or I had to enable it...

Making it default to on is good. Then maybe that'll set the precedent that a sane default that almost no-one changes can be safely removed.

Works the same in 2.1.
