Using this plugin, users who created the post and admins will be able to easily edit the post from the front-end, they will no longer have to log in to WordPress Dashboard to do so.  From backend setting, admin can select who can edit  the activity.  From this setting admin can enable the edit option for activity posts and activity replies from frontend.
