You lose the ability to edit a post after 24 hours, or thereabouts. PM a mod and they can do it for you.

Not sure what it is but certainly more than 24 hours. I just edited a 7 day old post.

But titles cannot be edited at all.

24 hours is usually the norm. I know for a fact you couldn't edit a 7 day old post on my TBSS forum.

Well I just edited a 32 day old post to prove a point.

Suggest you try the same.

BTW - this is the Impala SS forum.

VBulletin is the biggest forum software out there, doesn't matter what forum it is.

Point I proved is, you can not edit older posts. 8-4-2010 is the post he is looking to edit. So to avoid the pissing match, that is why you can not edit your post. Contact a Mod.

Well, if it makes you feel better and think you proved something, I am happy for you.

I will agree, a post 11 months ago is old and cannot be edited.

I just wanted to indicate that you can certainly edit much later than the 24 hour period you mentioned, in my case 7 days and 32 days later.

I couldn't care less about a pissing match, but since you mention VB, time of edit is determined by the Admin of a forum. It can be set for literally any period, by group, without any limits at all, etc. So you proved nothing.


Do not go gentle into that good night.
rage, rage against the dying of the light!
