One of my posts upset a reader and I added TRIGGERING to the title in Edit. The problem is that while it shows up in the post itself and in the forum it is not showing on the main forums page even when I scroll over it to see if its just too long of a title for it to show.

The question; How can one edit the title of a post so that it also shows on the main forums page? Maybe its not possible?

Thank You

I've been frustrated by this same question a few times. I've never found a way of doing it and finally decided it was built into the software that way. Maybe someone of the guys has discovered a way? Anyone?

I just added a period to the end of one of my posts and it showed up on all pages with the period. Is it perhaps a browser issue?

A work around may be..,

Would be to delete the post and resubmit an identical one with the cautionary words.
The site software does have a time limit on deleting a post, so, it would have to be done within that limitation.

Sono it isn't the post its the Title of the post that appears on the main forums page I cannot change.

I guess I'll have to be more thoughtful in how I describe what I post.
