    The policy was meant to protect as we wanted to deter any fiddling with the details to the cost of buyers.

    The change in strategy now is because we have a log of any versions of the post so we can check if any malicious changes have been made.

    The system is horrendously complicated under the bonnet and so at the moment it's still not working as we would like, but the final goal is to make the title and status fully editable by the poster.

    I've deleted the avatar file that was causing the problem

    The avatar appears on your posts in the forum. The profile image is only seen by those that go looking at your profile

    Done that.
    Avatar is now 59x80 and 19.4 kb and upload returns "Upload of file failed."
    What now?

    Seems it needs updating.
    Profile picture is 100x100, but avatar is 80x80.

    Please try that size image.

    The maximum file size is 19.5KB and I think yours is 23.54KB.

    I've managed to change the title on this thread

    http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthre...913#post355913

    Saw the edit option for the first time this evening. Went to advanced mode and all was good.

    Wasn't able to change the font colour in the title BTW.
    Titles don't have colours, only the prefixes and those are preset. Your ad doesn't have a prefix selected currently - was there one originally?

    Well done for getting this far though

    Ian
