Forum OpenACS Development: Re: OpenACS Permissions System - Performance Improvement Work
Forum admins DO have an easy way to edit badly formatted posts. They click on the "edit" link attached to each forum post including every reply in every thread. The fact that you don't see it doesn't mean it's not there, it simply means you're not a forum admin.
Jeff's tweak makes things much, much better than before, and is good enough that a real fix is no longer critical, but it's not really the right fix. The old openacs.org site had a correct fix.
Well, I don't see any "edit" link myself. But if it's made available to Admins, that's good.
