How do I delete a post? I go to Full Edit then click the Delete box on the left, then click the "Delete" button on right and get this message:

you can't.

we removed this functionality from regular users so they don't mass delete their posts/threads and disrupt the continuity on the forum.

If you want to delete a post, PM an administrator or moderator to discuss it.

Ok, that's what I thought. Maybe there could be a way to delete just the last post in the thread if it is yours.

unfortunately I don't think that's possible with our software or any forum software for that matter. not without a plugin, at least.

I had the same question, so I searched and found this thread. Thanks! In my case, I occasionally feel the need to delete, but with this information in future I will simply edit to correct my mistake or replace the language in the erroneous post with the word "deleted". Works for me! Smile
