What is the secret to this?!

Every time I try make a new thread and then want to go back later and edit the title or mark the prefix as Resolved that section disappears!

Doesn't matter what browser or computer.

Is there something I am not doing or am I under the mistaken impression that this is possible?

I am tired of bothering the mods to change thread titles and I am sure they are tired of me asking them.

How do I do this?

Do you see a gear icon with a dropdown arrow next to it at the top of the thread? Click that to show the Thread Tools dropdown, then select Edit Title.

You don't need to edit the post. Go to the very top of the thread, where the initial post is. You want the the thread tools not the edit-post options.

OOHHHHH!!!!

I see it now! It's not in the Edit Post settings, it's at the top of the post itself!!!

Why would it not be in the Edit Post settings?!! Very unintuiative!

Yeah, I guess that's kind of why I was expecting it to be there.

I've adapted to the changes, but didn't realize that this particular edit feature had relocated elsewhere.
Don't worry; you are not the only person to whom this has happened.

Quite literally, for quite some time after the change over to Xenforo, I never even noticed - let alone saw - that 'gear' icon - it had to be pointed out to me on at least two separate occasions…..
