Change Post Edit behaviour for the forum

Recommended Posts

Hi Admins,

 

I wonder if the site software supports the more common used Post Edit behaviour on other sites,  you could edit your post as many times as you like without this message "Edited just now by majstangshows up? If you edit a post after someone has replied then the Edit message should show up. Yeah, I know, I should be more careful correcting spelling mistakes and what not before posting, but Im simply not and notices my errors when reading through the post after submitting it, leaving sadly enough 90% edited topics:blush: If changing this I wouldnt run the risk of being exposed as a bad speller:lol:

Oh jeeez! I posted this in the wrong section, i didnt see there was a Forum / Wiki / Website (de/en). I was using the english section filter.

Feel free to move the topic and sorry for the extra work:blush:

Hello majstang,

 

me too! :thumbsup:

 

But it doesn't bother me too much. And only in a few times I make a notice to the reason for editing the posting. Especially not, if I had found a misspelled word.:blushing:

 

 

Many Greetings

Haha...yes:D Well, I do my typing on a funky little HTPC keyboard that is so old that some keys dont work very well any longer and its proved to be quite hard to find new small keyboards with background lighted keys, so the spelling mistakes are frequent and when noticing that in principle my every post has the edit comment it gets kind of embarrasing:blush:;) Although a large part of my edits gets done when it strikes me i have more to say right after submitting it. That is why I think other sites, already using the suggested change, has the best setting. Additionally imagine how much unnecessary space all those auto generated edit-comments (not just mine of course ;)) must be taking when back-up the whole site.

 

EDIT: I came to think about an another feature on other sites, often connected to this suggestion, a post preview button. If pressing it you will get a preview how the post would look like when submitted, where its easier to spot mistakes.

Hello,

 

wasn't there a preview function for postings in the old forum-software?

 

 

Many greetings
