    How do you edit a title after posting - for instance if a two part question is asked & only one part is answered which then changes what the Title threadis about.

    If YOU are the original poster and use the FULL EDITOR to edit your post, you CAN change the title to suit the situation.

    Well, I have to use a thread in which I am the original poster, so here is a thread that I started.

    If I click Edit and then Use the Full editor, here is the screen I see:

    Please be careful when you do this, as it can make a nonsense out of the replies that have answered the part of your question already discussed. It will usually be better to simply post a new reply yourself thanking people for the replies and restarting the second half of your question.

    That's a good case for arguing that the title should be locked once a reply has been added...
