      Description

      I am experiencing the following problem with 1.7.1 installed from the build of 8 February 2007

      Any user, when viewing their own posting is presented with the choice of "edit" as well as "reply" and "delete" even after the posting has been sent. (The special setting allowing admins to always edit postings it NOT set to "true". )

        Please file separate bugs for separate issues, it makes them easier to manage later. Thanks.

        I'll open a new one for the second issue.

        Hi, Yu, can you look at this one? It seems to be a role permissions issue.

        Hi could you make sure that your students don't have mod/forum:editanypost capability? This capability actually allows them to edit any post any time.

        Hi, if this can be set/unset on a role basis, I'd say it is a feature not a bug (as long as it can be turned off), being able to enable students in a particular forum to delete/edit forum posts at any time is a highly requested feature from our faculty.

        It seems that someone (not me!) had given students additional privileges at the forum level that had resulted in the reported behavior. Sorry: "not a bug".
