Forum & Site help

Post by Shaughn » Fri 16 Jun 2017, 16:58

Hi there

FORUMS How do we

1- Edit a topic and or its header. :?:
2. delete a topic or close it for discussions. (provided we started it). :?:
3. Change username - was told it can be done via admin panel, cant find the option. :?:

Suggestion:

4. Parts / Cars for sale on other sites is full of DEAD links, all of which is bad for site SEO etc and we should lock and close topics like that if the items are sold and the ads expired on OLX etc

Main Site Related:

Almost every link on the main site links section goes to dead ends / expire websites. Same can be said for many of the pages with links to 3rd parties.

1: Users cannot edit topics and headers
2: Users cannot delete topics, a few years ago it was decided to disable this after one of the epic race car discussions.
3: Users cannot change users names, again this could be confusing to some members.
4: Impractical due to the volume of links and the fact is you have for example Fairlane for sale, there are often pictures and the topic itself is updated often, this is especially true in the Parts/Cars for sale on other sites.

Had a look at the permissions and you should be able to edit your profile. Yes, I see that it is possible to edit topics if it was a topic you started. I think this was done to allow people to edit when a for sale items has been sold.
