Possibility to disable 'Last edit:' line

I think it would be a good idea if it were possible to disable the forum from showing the following sentence: « Last Edit: January 04, 2020, 12:08:42 PM by Erwinbuk » on every message that has been edited.

I know there are mods to do this but I think it would be nice if there was a setting in the software itself for this.

i dont think this should even be considered a feature in the core software. if you modify a post it should be well known to anyone/everyone especially if the post is not yours.

Given the ability that different users have to edit posts, it's logical to think that we should record who edited a post and when. That's why it's the default behaviour of SMF and basically all forum systems.

Mods are meant to add or modify current behaviour of SMF, and as you said, there are already mods that can do that. That's why I don't think this should be added as a core feature.

The option is available to disable the edit line under the current theme and Show last modification date on modified posts i unchecked and the line is removed from the post for both admins and regular members.

I think it is for 2.0 at least checked a few of my forums and has that option and i don't have a mod.
I see this in the 2.0.x code

// Show "� Last Edit: Time by Person �" if this post was edited.
if ($settings['show_modify'] && !empty($message['modified']['name']))
echo '
« <em>', $txt['last_edit'], ': ', $message['modified']['time'], ' ', $txt['by'], ' ', $message['modified']['name'], '</em> »';

Well that's awkward, apparently that's a default core feature. I didn't know it existed.

As KittyGalore said, you can modify this behaviour under Admin > Configuration > Current Theme > Show last modification date on modified posts

Note too that this is all explained in the documentation: https://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/SMF2.0:Themes_and_Layout#Theme_Settings ;).

As this feature already exists, I've moved the topic to the appropriate board.

This looks to be around for a while and yet we didn't know that feature existed. ;)

Thank you very much all for your help! We have now changed this setting.
