Let mods update the author and date of discussions and posts.

The author edit button is added underneath the title/tag edit button for discussions and under the content edit button for posts.

Author edit

Users with "Update author" permission must also have the "View user list" permission to be able to search for users.

Date edit

The field uses the native datetime-local picker in browsers that support it (at the time of writing, Chrome/Edge/Opera). The field format in supported browsers will match your browser/operating system language and country setting.

The time in the modal is UTC.


The first post of a discussion and the discussion itself are not automatically synced. You will probably want to edit the data in both places.

This extension was written live on YouTube. Watch the video on the Clark writes code channel: Author part, Date part. Support me on Patreon!
