Let me edit my posts on this forum

I’ve been using Discourse for years on tens of forums, and this is the first instance I see where post editing is disabled. I made a typo, why should I not fix it?

Please, re-enable post editing. The history is fully tracked, if you’re concerned with abuse.

Hi @Dan_Dascalescu

You have to reach Trust Level 1 in the Community in order to be able to edit posts. You get to trust level 1 by:

  • Entering at least 5 topics
  • Reading at least 30 posts
  • Spend a total of 10 minutes reading posts

Users at trust level 1 can…

  • Use all core Discourse functions; all new user restrictions are removed
  • Send PMs
  • Upload images and attachments if enabled
  • Edit wiki posts
  • Flag posts
  • Mute other users

There’s more information on it here:


Hey there, I still cannot edit my post, even at Trust Level 1. Any idea why?
