I'll do a little more digging, but I don't believe making the edit notation mandatory is an option. The way it appears to work is...
* When you edit your initial post, this option appears beneath the edit box.
Obviously, this is optional. I have also discovered this is inaccurate - there appears to be no time stamp, just your handle. (You are the only person who can edit your content, except for admins, and we almost never do that.)
* when you edit your reply to a post, there is no such option.
With that in mind, can you be specific in what you're asking for? Such as:
* make this option mandatory
* make this option available for replies
* make it add a time stamp like it says it does
* make the person and time stamp info static (not editable)
* etc, all of the above, whatever.
About the most I can do is make a feature request back to the Jive folks. I'll go poke around the configuration options and see if I can make this option default to on, but I doubt that's an option. Even if it is, all it does is add content to the message, which you can of course edit.
(EDIT: I can find no way to modify this behavior in Jive. In a bit of recursion, I note that while editing, since this is a reply, there is no way I can add a date/time stamp to the edit, or identify who is doing the edit.)
IIRC,the old forum placed a "Edited date/time" automatically (reason optional) if you edited post/reply.
At present,it is all too easy to modify your post/reply anytime you wish without it being noted.It is up to the individual to type "Edit....................."into post.
Yep, very true. Time stamps on edits don't happen in this tool - Jive.
Oh well.if it can't be done,it can't.
Thanks for having a look.
Your choice on correct answer.
