    Note only the original poster of the thread can edit the title.

    To do so, if you go to the first post in the thread and being the original poster click on the option to edit the post.

    On the pop up editor select the "More Options..." button at the bottom of the editor.


    This gives a full editor for the thread where the thread title is an edit box. Make and save the required changes.

    Not working for me since the upgrade Adrian. When I click on more options I get the first post but no title bar to edit.

    Hi Neil
    Caught me too this one - Heather posted the answer in another thread.

    Top right hand corner of your first post (note, you do not need to have clicked on edit at this point), click on the drop down menu 'Thread Tools'

    Click on 'Edit Thread' and you should be presented with an edit box for the title

    Change and save :)

    Thanks for that - saves me looking, I hadn't realised it had moved. I'd have had a look sooner but we've been playing treasure hunt and capture the flag with 20 Beaver Scouts in the dark instead!!

    Thanks Steve, I hadn't spotted that, works a treat.
