How do I set it up in 2.0.15 so that users can edit their post for a given number of minutes (say 60) but after that the post is locked for editing?

I want people to be able to correct errors, add photos or other info etc if they think of it shortly after making a post.

But I don't want to leave it open ended as then the occasional member who gets agro can go through and change all their posts to "." thus losing valuable content.

If it can be done either in the core program (ideally) or with a plugin - please let me know.  :rgton
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with questions on astrophysics or theology.  You will get better and faster responses by asking homeless people in the street. Thank you.
