So you can never edit a title...?

by Shane N 14 replies
In this new version of WF, when you edit your post and change the title...it only changes the title on the inside of the thread itself, not the outside?

For example, if you make a spelling or grammar mistake in the title of your thread or WSO and then edit it, the misspelled title will still be the one displayed in the main area of that forum.

I know its the way that VBulletin operates but...

Is there a way around this?

      That's right....but it will not change the title on the main page. The edited title will only be viewable once you open the thread.

          Thats' exactly right BIG Mike!

          Everyone,

          Type your titles carefully and make sure that it is the title you want to keep!

          Best,

            The only area where this does present a problem is with WSOs.

            As you know, many people test WSO titles. If one doesn't work, they will change to a different one. So this almost forces us to pick one and hope that it pulls the best. Not the most scientific way of testing titles.

            Oh well, I guess it's going to force us to really work hard on our copywriting techniques.

              But since we can't renew WSOs, we get a chance to test new headlines every few days when we resubmit our WSO to get it back on tip.

              Steve,

              Once it gets past page 2 we have to create a brand new one. So you can still test, you just have to do it slowly.

              That then makes me wonder, when you post the new one, is the old one deleted or will we end up with a bunch of duplicate WSOs past page 2???
