Edit Posts on Newsfeed | Forum

hi there,

is it possible to add an "edit"-function to the dropdown box (atm it's only possible to delete the post) in the newsfeed?

as well it would be interesting, that users are not allowed to delete posts, but mods or admins are.

thanks for your help

Blits,

>>is it possible to add an "edit"-function to the dropdown box (atm it's only possible to delete the post) in the newsfeed?

It is possible.
You can either suggest this feature to UserVoice  or do this yourself via custom code modification.

>> users are not allowed to delete posts, but mods or admins are.

Users can delete their own newsfeed comments.
What kind of "posts" do you mean?

Hi Aliia,

thanks for your reply. This means that no user had already this idea ;) i thought that maybe someone already implemented such a function but i wasn't able to find it in the forums.

i meant that no user should be able to delete their posts - only an admin or a moderator should be able to delete their own as well as user posts.

It's been nearly 4 years, and nobody asked for that feature ? I see a similar request in https://developers.oxwall.com/forum/topic/44129, with the related idea. I just added a comment to underline the necessity of editing not only for comments but for posts themselves.

yes, this makes the whole software ruined. It needs something simple as an edit.

There is comment editor but it is not worth the money the original was automatically loading the php line break code in and you had to delete those before you submitted the correction and now the updated version the edit box won't even open up.


If Jk would get off his you know what and fix it then it would sell like hot cakes but it is not even worth $0.50 as it is right now.
