    Thread Title bug

    JP, I discovered a bug.
    The bug is rather annoying cause it makes me look like a fool lol

    When you mistype your thread title and afterwards try to edit it with edit your post, it does not seems to be corrected at the main page or discussion forum overview pages. The only place where the edit is displayed correctly is at the thread itself.

    See my ISS / IIS post as an example for this bug

    Greetings:

    There are a LOT of reasons why we don't let people edit thread titles. Most have to do with the way we track things in the back-end, and also because of future features that we'll be adding that rely more heavily on topic titles.

    Sorry if this causes problems, but an easy solutions, would be to make sure you have the title you want before hitting the magic submit button.
