changing original for sale post title on 02/10/2013 07:42:09 MST Print View

How do I change the original title of my post? I've gone into edit and done that but it doesn't show up in the original title. If I want to lower price no one would know it unless they go back in. Seems like being able to edit the original title would let everyone know of the change in price or whatever.

Original titles cannot be edited.

A new post with "price drop" in the title will get the job done.

I don't think you can change the original post title, but you can do what I did here, and put it in the subject line. That will get noticed by folks.

Edit: Greg is having his morning coffee at the keyboard also, I see...

Totally agree that this should be allowed.

Simply allowing us to change the title with a "- SOLD" to the end of the existing title would make it so much nicer.

Not everybody uses that stupid "new posts since last visit" page, and as such, the most recent subject of the most recent comment to a post is worthless.
