Hi

Is there anyway of marking a reply as the fix for an issue like on other forums?

No, you can edit your OP to add [Solved] into the subject.

If you wanted to highlight a specific reply as the one that helped you solve your problem, you could add a quote to it into the OP but that isn't really necessary as anyone can just scroll through the thread to see what works for them.

I tried adding (SOLVED) to the first post of a recent thread, and it didn't show up on the main page. So I changed the title of the last post I made, and the main page updated properly, so it may be the last post that you made that you need to change.

I wouldn't mind knowing that a solution was found to a problem posted. However, the process is every bit as important as the solution.

According to the phpBB forum, you may have to change the title of every post in the thread. (If you want the title to be updated on the entire site...)

The way phpBB handles post titles is a remnant of a previous time. Each post in a thread has its own subject, and if you quote-reply to a specific post, your reply takes on that post's subject.

It's like an HTML frontend to a mailing list architecture, in a way.
