    Hello BG. To change the title of a thread you need to select Edit (see bottom of your post). Then you will need to select Go Advanced. You will be directed to edit the post or title.

    Editing is only allowed for a certain period of time after the post - currently 24 hours.

    :D

    If it has been more than 24 hours then you can not edit. The proper way to handle is to simply make a post on your thread with updates / edits / corrections. Some forums don't allow any editing period at all. However if there is a serious issue with a post you may elect to use the "report post" feature or ask for a moderator's assistance.
