Editing your own posts

I have never been able to do this. I still cannot do this. Is anyone except Romy able to do this?

The own post's editing bug

Well, this becomes to be a mystery.  Currently the site is configured that nay poster can edit own post for 2 hours since the post was posted. I have a test site running at parallel server and I tested last week this functionality, creating there dummy non-administrative accounts, making post and editing them. I saw absolutely no inconsistency how the editing functionality was working. I also tested the GMT time offsetting and it’s effect to 120 minutes elapsing. It was perfect. The production site and testing site run the same code. I have my own test non-admin account in production site and I made replies to the threads that have no subscribers – I was able to edit my test posts.

I certainly have no doubts that something going on if you complain and there is a condition that makes the post not editable but I was not able to catch what it is. I will look more into it later on this week. The inability for the posters to edit own post is not my intend but some kind of apparent bug.

Should there be an "edit" button?

Nope. I only see profile, print, e-mail, quote, reply. Is there supposed to be an "Edit" button that shows up, or is there some secret special way I don't know about to edit the entries?

Yep, I did some tests and I did found a bug that behaves inconsistently in the method of GMT conversion. I will fix it within a few days.

Erratic dates comparing….
fiogf49gjkf0d

I spent 3 hours trying to figure out why a single line of code suddenly stopped to work. It is ridicules as the line where the dates are compared suddenly stopped to compare them. I will look into it further but at this point I have no idea why it starts to behave this way.           

  if (Globals.GetSiteSettings().PostDeleteAgeInMinutes > 0)
      if (post.PostDate < DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(-Globals.GetSiteSettings().PostEditBodyAgeInMinutes))
         throw new ForumException(ForumExceptionType.PostEditPermissionExpired);
break;

The posts editing shall be OK now.
fiogf49gjkf0d
A poster might edit own past within 3 hours since it was posted. The problem was with 1.1 framework dates comparing that made me to convert the whole forum’s engine to 2.0 framework. Let me know if anyone still has problems with posts editing….

A new issue
fiogf49gjkf0d
I noticed this problem begin to occur yesterday, so possibly it is related to the changes made to correct the editing issue. The text on the forums pages now overlaps and runs off the page.

The problem occurs with the browsers Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari, but not with IE.

OK, it must work now. You need to login into the site for each browser and I set login status with cookies and the browsers do not share them.
