403 error on editing a question

+1
−0

If I click on the edit link on a question (e.g., https://outdoors.codidact.com/questions/74859/edit ), I get a 403 page.

This is either a bug (i.e., I should be able to edit) or a feature (I'm not supposed to be able to edit due to low Trust Level).

If it is a bug, please fix.

If it is a feature, far better would be:

a) Gray-out the "edit" link and provide mouseover text of "You must have a higher Trust Level to edit" or similar b) Allow the "edit" link to function but instead of a 403 page, show a page explaining Trust Levels and what I need to do in order to be able to edit.

Unrelated, but noticed now as I'm writing the Meta Question:

  • I think the Title field should be above the Body field when creating a Question.
  • The license selection field should have a link to an explanation. New users, if they aren't certified geeks, will have no idea what this is about and therefore might click it to select a different license and then say "I don't know, whatever" and instead of selecting Site Default instead leave it as an unintended different license.
