Is there a way to change Forum Thread titles? For example I see people running auctions with a specific title and then, a few days later, I might see the same title with the words "Ends in 2 days" added to it. Are people just posting second threads and deleting the originals or is there a way to make changes?

Re: Change Forum Thread Titles? : I edited the reply and changed the reply's subject!
If you edit the first post in the thread you can change the subject of the thread. Try it out with this thread!

Edit: It is also possible to edit the subject of regular (i.e., not the starting thread message) thread replies, as illustrated in this post.

Edit the original post and then you can change the header, yes.

Hi Folks

So I've done this, but the Forum Listing is still based on the old
thread header I'd originally applied to the first thread ...

New (First) Thread Subject Header ...



Wonky Forum Listing ...




.... It's causing a bit of confusion, what can I do to sort?

Thanks, Walts

It seems the thread title got updated when I posted a reply.

Check that you have actually edited and saved the header of the first post in that thread.

I'll be Harkonnen and have two troops in Minor Erg and move a harvester there from Arakeen.

A point is that only the person who initiated the thread can change the title of the thread.

I'm not sure how quickly the title change would propagate through the database. A lot of stuff gets cached and various update jobs run in the background.
