  1. It's nothing to do with mods. It's to do with the nature of the forum, and getting the right balance between forcing a user to show when they last edited their post whilst allowing some grace for typos to be corrected.
  2. I think what I am asking for has been misunderstood. I know there is already the ability to enable users to optionally add this or not, or to make it mandatory. What I am asking for is the ability to completely ignore this option within the first X minutes of a posts creation. The contents of the first post may update many times (it's a photography forum, new images are added following edits) so I want the forum to show the time and date of the last edit. If, however, my users make a typo during their initial post, I would like for them to be able to edit that typo (let's say, they have a 5 minute grace to spot and correct such errors) without the board showing 'last edited on....'. It's not a current feature and some board administrators do want this (as my search revealed). Effectively, like this... If post time is less than 5 minutes and invisible editing grace is enabled (crap description, yes), do not show 'last edited by' dialogue. If post time is more than 5 minutes, and "Allow user to remove 'Edited by' legend?" is set to no, show the 'last edited by' dialogue. Like I said, this is a feature of other forum boards. In certain scenarios, as insignificant as it may seem, this is a very good feature.
  3. This is mad... I can't see any logical reason why this would have been removed?
  4. Ref: This is not only a feature on a rival premium forum software, but many free forum softwares also have this as a feature. I don't believe this would be a big job to add. Ideally, the admin should have the option to enable/disable this... Potentially with two grace periods. If a forum post is edited within the first grace period, the 'Edited by...." text is optional (or simply does not display (easier to code?)). After that time, and if selected by the admin as required, the "Edited by...." text should show. Pretty please. It's such a simple yet very effective means of keeping track of change without exposing human errors that are corrected almost instantly.
  5. IPB seems to allow you to change the sort order of custom fields, but not custom field groups. Is this something that could be added? Thanks C
  6. I think this really does depend on local law. Certainly in the UK, changes to terms and conditions are notified via mail (sometimes e-mail) and most terms contain a clause notifying you that such changes can take place 'with notice'.
  7. I assume this is 3.1.4 compatible? Anybody know?
