    Changing thread title doesn't change the title in the replies

    I just changed the title of this thread (from "Essay - Correction help"). However, even though I used the usual Administrative method of changing the title, it only changed it in post #1. I then had to go to each individual response, Edit Post, Go Advanced and paste the new title in.

    I'm sure that before the recent update, changing a thread title automatically changed the title of each response. Am I imagining that? It would be really helpful. I know I rarely get around to changing a thread title before there's at least one reply.

    Thanks.

    Re: Changing thread title doesn't change the title in the replies

    Hiya. This isn't new behaviour after the latest updates. The updates were only cosmetic this time (mainly to make the site easier to use on mobile and tablet devices). In fact, there's a discussion about this very issue in the moderator's chat forum from 8th March called 'Editing thread Titles'.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
