Edit a post

Is it normal on a forum that anyone can edit every post? I would have thought that I could only edit my own posts? I tried this morning to edit a spelling mistake just to be curious and I was able to do it....

No, most forums have a limited number of members that have admin authority that allow anyone other than the author to make changes.

I found an incorrect setting that granted permissions to PRO Members that were incorrect. I believe I've corrected it now so that you can still edit/delete your own posts but not for others.

Bob,
You are a moderator and not just a moderator but a Super Moderator.

In addition to letting you edit anyone's post, it gives you super human powers and if that doesn't make the rest of us shudder, it should.

I see that this is the case but I have the permissions set for PRO Members to be able to edit their own posts. I'll figure out why this isn't working.
It's always something, isn't it?
