If it were possible, it would defeat the purpose of being able to search for a resolution to a problem. If all the questions that got answered were "SOLVED", then the search would lose some of its fuctionality. Yeah, it would still be able to search the body, but that takes more time and puts more load on the server.
My advice is to just put another post at the bottom of your thread or, edit the body of the post and put a line at the top and the notes that solved the issue are somewhere so everyone can reference the knowledge when we come across the same problem.
Originally posted by anindyanuri Thank you for your opinion. I think moderators should think over the matter and to add another button marked as solved and change the database as required to find out the solved problems.
We experimented with this so called "solved" button here in the Website Suggestions and Feedback forum in which no one ever used it. As nice as a feature like this sounds, we truly feel it won't be used like it should be. You should try searching this forum, this has been asked and answered many many times.
Without rehasing the entire "solved/answered" topic, you can edit your original thread and update the Title field if you wish. (This will not change the title as it appears on the forum list, however, it will change the title when you are viewing that specific thread.)
Along these lines, I would encourage all LQ'ers to post a follow-up in your thread if/when you do find a solution to the original issue. Doing so will be a tremendous help to future readers who may have the same question, and will help make LQ an even better resource for the Linux community. -- J.W.
