There must be a way to delete unwanted postings in the Forums. I can prune topics older than a certain # of days, I can delete entire topics/categories and I can delete replies to postings. But I don't see an option anywhere in the Forums or in the Forum Admin area to delete an entire post. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Brent,

You, as admin, should see 4 icons at the bottom left of any post that you are on. They represent Delete, Move, Lock, and Split at the topic level. Just click the X and follow the yellow brick road or the white rabbit, which ever you prefer Wink

Well I created a post and then I replied to that post. When I view it, there is an X for the reply so I can delete the reply, but there isn't an X on the first post, so I don't see a way to delete the first post. There are also other posts where I don't see any X's at all!

Only Admins have access to the 4 icons that I am referring to. Look at the bottom, not the individual posts.

Then you are not logged in as admin or you do not have admin rights.

'tis funny, I replied before seeing your reply Raven! But then I went and looked and sure enough, I didn't have any of the options at the bottom of the screen. I figured I was an Admin for sure (how else could I have created and customized the whole forum area?) but when I went into the Forum Admin area I saw that my id was not in fact a Moderator (I didn't see any other option than being a Moderator). After changing myself to a Moderator, I could see the cool little options at the bottom of the screen and I could also delete the posts, which I did.

Now my only question is why was I able to do everything in the forums that I did (I created the whole structure of topics, etc.)??

to do just that you need to be in the forum admin area,but playing god in the forum as moderator you need to be loggged in as member but set as moderator in the forum config....

Use phpMyAdmin, modify the 'users' table and change your user_level to 2.

A moderator is a 3 and is not the same as an Admin.

An Admin is higher then? How do I set myself up as an Admin? Is is only done through phpMyAdmin? And if an Admin's user_level is 2 in the users table, what is a 1?

Sometimes nuke doesn't update the user_level like it should. Never have known why. In any event, that's the sure way Wink A moderator is the next step DOWN in authority from an Administrator. A 1 is a normal user. I don't make the rules Laughing
