When your issue has been fixed, please edit the title of your first post
and add the [Solved]
tag at the beginning (this is not an automatic feature, you've to type it manually, beware of the title length). This will appear in the forum index, so other users can spot the threads where they can find an answer to their issue, and volunteers will know that those threads do not need further attention.
The thread title is the title of the first post
in the thread. To edit that post, click the button "EDIT" top right of the post. You can only edit the posts that belong to you of course.
You can also add an icon so that the thread is graphically tagged in the index list.
→ your problem has been fixed
→ known issue in the Issue Tracker (users will be able to vote for it)
→ mostly used by moderators to tag a borderline thread.
When posting your question, please leave that alone to avoid disturbing the thread index with flames and radioactive tags. Even if you need urgent help.
Putting the tag at the beginning of the title with the icon makes it easier to scan the indexes because the tag is always at the same place, the eye has not to look for the end of the title to check. Moreover, when the search is performed from an external search engine, the title may be truncated. Having the "[Solved]" tag at its beginning immediately gives the user the information that may be hidden else.And if you don't get any answer?
If you're the author of the thread (i.e. first post), you can bump the thread (without replying your own issue) with the button at bottom. This way, the thread will be put back to the top of the New Topics display - as if a reply had been made. Note that you can do that only once and after a period of inactivity on that thread (currently 10 days).
