    Is it fate that the color of my car is Caffe Latte?

    Macs and a cup of joe. Two of life's pleasures.

    I second that motion!

    Especially the second statement. We should have the right to edit!

    A forum for technical issues: do you mean specifically for businesses and commercial machines or open to all?

    Have you ever walked through the aisle of your local grocer and smelled the death of a dying bean?

    But that would just be "rubbing our noses in it", with your "edit button". Really though it's a simple enough configuration change and I expect the choice was made not to have it some time ago, can't think why though?

    Is it simple? I've looked in the admin section and I just don't see the option.

    In your phpBB administration select "forum management". Use the "advanced mode" to check how your settings are for registered users on one of the forums. There are a row of drop down combo boxes, one of them is called "edit" By default, it should be set to "REG" for registered users allowed to edit their posts.

    I use the same software as you do for my own Coffee forum.

    I suspect you have set up some user groups and the group that ordinary users are in doesn't have edit rights to the forums. You possibly did that thinking you didn't want them editing other peoples posts, but all the edit right mean is they can edit their own posts. If you have say set up groups like user, contributor, supporter etc... and all your people are generally in contributor, when you go into the "group Permissions", you again will be given the right to turn edit rights ON.

    I only user user groups for specific areas of my forum and I keep the main parts of the forum with the default reg and "non reg" users rights to keep it simple.

    I'll take some screenshots and post em up if you need them.

    You also don't seem to be using some of the available mods e.g. the Portal mod, calendar and you could make a toolbar specifically for your forum. Oddly enough you don't seem to have RSS feeds enabled either?

    check out mine....have a look around the toolbar and try the different options. It's a very powerful tool and will allow you a lot more flexibility and can be edited and your users see changes and new messages etc.. in a few minutes. Obviously, you would simply use the same provider to make your own.

    No problem people should have the edit button now.

    When the forum was purchased we just left the settings the way they were set by the previous owner. I was mistakingly looking in the config part of the admin console.

    Thanks!
