    Is it possible to edit the title of a thread?

    I tried to edit the price in the title of this tread: https://www.sniperforums.com/forum/cl...0-shipped.html

    While it shows the change within the header of the post, it still shows the old price in the title/link?

    Just curious if I am missing something..

    Haven't had to do it for a while but I believe that there is a separate thread title you can edit in advanced mode. It may not be possible to change the title after others have posted to it - that can vary with the forum software used.

    Yep. Just to be clear, I did 'try' to edit the thread title of the thread via the advanced mode (there is a box for that) - but, it only amended the header-title within the thread, not the main title-link in the thread starter section.

    I just had a look at an older post I started it looks like the title of the thread for the first post and the title of the thread should be the same. Change one and you should change the other. It's got to have something to do with the settings for this particular forum.

    That's what I figured. Dunno if this is by design, or just over-site - it stands to figure that its some sort of over-site though...

    haha! I try to be a likeable fellow..

    If it's worth your time Scott, feel free to just scratch the price from the title (in-case I amend it again); but if it's too much trouble, no worries~

    Thanks for at least taking the time to respond!
