Hi everyone!

I'm experiencing some issues with enabling the "Edit" function for Admin. Basically, Admin has all the permissions, is the Moderator of the Forum (tried also without giving him the Moderator function), the "Posts can be edited after replies" is also enabled and there is still no button to edit the message (or at least that I know of), it goes for own posts and other user's posts.

Could you help me out here?

Thanks!

Of which groups is Admin part of? Is it "the" Admin user created when you installed the software?

That the user is not able even to edit his own posts is very strange.

Admin is part of all the groups, like read, write accesses, etc. I don't think it is "the" Admin account that was there when the software was installed. But nevertheless, being assigned to groups that have all accesses should allow the "created" admin user to edit posts, at least its own.

No, I meant user groups: Admin Control Panel -> Groups

It has it's own group called "Administration". That group is the "Top level Group", so it is not a child of any other group.

Strange. Any user (admin/moderator or not, in group General or Administration) should be able to edit their own post, provided that the post is not locked and "Posts can be edited after replies" is enabled.
