  • Question

  • Let's say hypothetically that you post a question and you get several responses. After a while, you find the solution. Is there a way to change your question from unanswered to an answered question? That will prevent people from continuing responding to the thread.

Answers

  • I would recommend doing this by replying to your question with the details of where you found the answer. Then you can go back and mark that post as the answer.

    Not only will doing this allow other people that come across your question to see what the answer was, but it will accomplish your goal.

  • I agree absolutely. If the solution is found, you need to post it not only for you, but for other readers of this thread as well.
