When you create a thread in the Security Configuration forum, you will need to fill-in some fields with your current security setup. However at some point you may need to install or uninstall a program. When this happens you can update your thread security setup by doing the following:

1. Within the thread you've originally created, click on the "Thread Tools", then select "Edit Thread Fields".

2. An overlay window should now pop-up. These window will contain the information that you've originally posted. Edit the fields that you would like to update, and then click on the "Save Changes" button.

That's it. Stay safe!

When editing your Security Configuration you will need to make sure the following items in the highlighted area (image below) are filled in & the radio buttons ticked.


This is a bug in Xenforo and if not completed when you hit "save changes" you will get the "Oops something went wrong" error

To edit your config click the "Thread Tools" button on the top right next to "Watch Thread" and select "Edit Thread" from the drop down menu


*Thanks to @Jack @Huracan for pointing out the bug which is being worked on.
