The purpose of this component is to encourage users to add edit reasons when they edit a post. Edit reasons are displayed at the top of a post’s edit history modal and are a great way to understand why something within a post was changed. This might be especially useful for users that are able to edit other users’ posts as it will help to avoid any “why did you edit my post?!” responses.
How it Works
If an affected user tries to submit an edit without an edit reason, a popup modal is presented that displays a customizable message explaining the situation. Once they have added an edit reason, their edit can be submitted successfully.
Pro-tip: If you want to require all users to add edit reasons, simply add the
trust_level_0group to the “edit reason required groups” theme setting.
