this is how i did it. this is a dirty hack but its working properly. you must back up your database and the files you are going to edit...

add these 4 database fields to your forum topics database.

1. edited(tinyint, length 1, not null, defualt=0) - tells if a topic is edited.
2. lastedited(varchar, length 12, null, default=NULL) - time of last edit.
3.editby(varchar, length 50, null, default=null) - username of the one who edit the topic.
4. eid(mediumint, length 8, null, default=nulll) -uid of the one who edits the topic.


----forum/createtopic.php ----

at around line 61, look for this code
Text Formatted Code
$editid = gf_applyFilter($HTTP_POST_VARS['editid'],true);


 

below that line, add this code
Text Formatted Code

$edited = "1";
if($aname != '') {
            $name = $aname;
    }


 


at around line 85, look for this code
Text Formatted Code

DB_query("UPDATE {$_TABLES['gf_topic']} SET subject='$subject',comment='$comment',postmode='$postmode', mood='$mood', sticky='$sticky', locked='$locked' WHERE (id='$editid')");


 

alter it so it would look like this
Text Formatted Code
DB_query("UPDATE {$_TABLES['gf_topic']} SET subject='$subject',comment='$comment',postmode='$postmode', mood='$mood', sticky='$sticky', locked='$locked', lastedited='$date', edited='$edited', editor='$name', eid='$uid' WHERE (id='$editid')");


 


---forum/include/gf_showtopic.php----
at around line 93, inside function showtopic find this code
Text Formatted Code
$date = COM_getUserDateTimeFormat($showtopic['date']);


 

below that add these codes
Text Formatted Code

if ($showtopic['edited'] == 1) {
                                        $datee = COM_getUserDateTimeFormat($showtopic['lastedited']);
        $dateedited = $LANG_GF01['EDITED']. ' ' .$datee[0];
        $editby = '<b>' .$showtopic['editby']. '</b>';
                         
        $editedby='<A HREF="' .$_CONF['site_url'] .'/users.php?mode=profile&uid=' .$showtopic['eid']. '">' .$editby . '</a>';
    }
 

set variables.
before this
Text Formatted Code

$retval .= $topictemplate->finish ($topictemplate->get_var('output'));


 

add
Text Formatted Code

 $topictemplate->set_var ('last_edit', $dateedited);
 $topictemplate->set_var ('editedby', $editedby);



 



at the root derictory
--plugins/forum/language/english.php--
add something like this
Text Formatted Code

$LANG_GF01['EDITED']         = 'edited this post on';



 


---public_html/layout/yourtheme/forum/layout/topic.thtml---
find this
Text Formatted Code

<td align="left" valign="top">{topic_comment}</td>


 

alter it so it would look something like this
Text Formatted Code

<td align="left" valign="top">{topic_comment}<br><br><br><br>      <i>{editedby} {last_edit}</i></td>
