Product Review Database: Editing a product description?

Discussion in 'Forum Usage Help' started by jenderfazz, Apr 12, 2004.

  1. Hi. I added a bass to the review database, but I'd like to make modifications to the product description. As far as I can tell, there is no way to edit the product, just to delete it. Is there a way that I could add information or pictures, or modify the information that is already there?

    EDIT: The gear review database is kind of a forum, right? Hopefully this topic belongs here. ;)

    Hi jenderfazz,
    I believe only a moderator can change or edit a post in the gear review. If there is something that you want changed, or a picture added. Please feel free to PM me with what you want to have changed. I would be glad to do so.

  3. Perfect, thanks a lot. Fender is updating some of the spec sheets on their site so I'll let you know when I have the new info.
  4. Is it still the case that only a moderator can edit reviews or products? May I ask why the originator can't do that? Thanks!

    All users should have the ability to edit their own reviews and items that they've contributed. (The thread you quoted is 14 years old ;) ) If this isn't the case let me know and I'll investigate :)

  6. Yeah, I cringed when I saw the age. But last night at home, the only Edit button showing was for the item tags. Today I can see that one here at work, and I now have one for the review. But I can't edit the item. I'm logged in as myself; to the best of my knowledge I only have one account. The three items I checked were the Epiphone Thunderbird IV. the Kalamazoo Bass 30, and the Electro-Harmonix Memory Boy. I don't know why the review Edit button wasn't there at home (Using either Chrome or Firefox on current Fedora OS), but I used both my eyeballs and the browser's page search function to no avail. The Edit button next to the tags only brings up a tags editor.

    I removed some time limits on review/item editing - let me know if you can edit now.
  8. That did it! Thanks very much, paul!
