Is it possible for a few posts to stay editable?

Thu Jun 21, 2012 12:08 pm

Hello,
Everything is in the title :p
Yes, I'have read http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/faq.php#f2r1 and I understand that it's needed on such a big forum but I was wondering for the people who have a project and would like to keep the first post up to date...
in example : I would like to edit the two first post of this thread : http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... =35&t=7739

Thank you for reading :)
edit : I don't like my title :oops: it's more like "Is it possible for a few posts to stay editable?"

In that case, maybe a wiki or blog would be more appropriate?

The problem is that your original post won't come up as "new" (i.e., "unread") for people, so the net result is that no one will read your updates. That basic to the way forums are designed to be used.
And some folks need to stop being fanboys and see the forest behind the trees.

(One of the best lines I've seen on this board lately)

Yes, a blog or Wiki entry woudl be more appropraite I think. Then on the forum thread just post a link to your latest blog/Wiki update.

Ok, thank you for your answers, I had'nt thought about the problem of the "already read" function !

I will try to find a wiki and/or a git.

phpBB has a Bump setting: You can only bump a topic if you are the author or the last poster. A topic that is bumped will appear as unread topic for all members.

Bumping in phpBB is a Forum permission which needs to be set per forum per usergroup/user.
Note that in ACP - GENERAL - Post settings you should set the "Bump interval".

Another thing that would be nice if they set it up.
