#2121 closed enhancement (fixed)

Forums: Increase time limit to edit a post

Description

One of ru_RU forum members raised a point that time limit for editing posts should be increased.

Apparently it's set to just a couple of minutes now, which might not be enough to catch all the typos or fix code formatting issues. And if you submit corrections in a follow-up post, the topic goes out of the "No Replies" view and gets less attention.

A workaround is to prepare the post in advance using Notepad or other text editor, but that's not a very friendly UX.

Ideally, there should also be a way to preview posts before submitting, see #153.

You can change this in bbadmin.

/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=bbpress

EN is now 60 minutes. Do you need someone with access to that to bump that?

I have a vague recollection this was going to be added to the _forum creations script_ by @jmdodd, if not it should be along with updating all the existing international forums.

Yeah, Rosetta forum admins don't have access to that page. I think it should be done programmatically via a filter for all forums.

EN is now 60 minutes.

2121.patch sets that value for all forums.

In 5134:

Support Forums: Increase edit lock time from 5 minutes to 1 hour.

This ensures that Rosetta forums have the same edit lock value as the main support forums.

Fixes #2121.
