[Suggestion] "Soft Delete Function"

Post by Christy » Wed Jun 09, 2010 1:07 am

Hello,

I wanted to suggest an idea that is currently on vBulletin. I've only tested out the demo and I thought one of the functions they had was very cool. The function was a "Soft Delete" option that would allow one to delete a post from being seen by normal members but still able to be seen by administrators/moderators. They could then moderate the post or "Un-delete" it. I'm not sure if anyone knows what I'm talking about or if it is a mod or something already. Just a suggestion.

Thanks,

This is something which will most likely happen for 3.1.

There is a MOD in existence for phpBB 3.0 written by EXReaction.

Please change the topic title to something more descriptive. "Suggestion" doesn't really say anything about the content of your first post.

Hello,

Edited: Sorry I've not been here long and wasn't sure what the procedure was...
