    How do I mark a thread [solved]?

    I cannot seem to find the "mark thread as solved" link on thread tools above my first post. What am i doing wrong?

    How do I mark a thread [solved]?

    I just posted the final description of the solution to my problem on one of my threads. When I went to the Thread Tools link to mark the thread [solved] I found only three options: show printable version; email this page; subscribe to this thread. What happened to the option "mark this thread [solved]"? How do I mark a thread solved now?

    It's broken after the upgrade. See this link for workaround:

    Question Re: How do I mark a thread [solved]?

    I have a problem marking an older thread as SOLVED: Having upgraded to 12.04.1-LTS, AMD64 Edition, before I could catch satisfactory Replies for backporting Moonlight and Gecko Media Player from the in-development 12.02b2 Precise (to be 12.04.2-LTS, as of April 2013) to 10.04.4-LTS ("PPA's for Moonlight and Gecko Media Player," started 5 February 2012), I am unable to edit the first Post, so the workaround is not an option. Any estimate on an actual fix for the Thread Tools, as of 5 March 2013?

    Hello!

    In general, a thread needs to be marked solved manually for the moment. ETA for a fix is unknown.

    Please see coffeecat's post in this thread.

    However, an anti-spam measure now means that you may not edit posts more than 7 days old.

    I have edited the subject to mark it solved.

    And seeing the terror on the faces of the people, QIII did speak to them, saying "Fear not the Terminal, for it is a road both swift and secure to the Great Mysteries of Linux without passing through the dangers of The Land of Ten Thousand Competing Desktop Environments."

    An update that QIII may have missed, is we increased the post edit limit to 60 days.

    Re: How do I mark a thread [solved]?

    OK, works for me. I think an explanation of this should be posted at the top of the forum, as a sticky, at least until this is made more convenient (I won't say "solved").
