#925 closed defect (wontfix)

Can't delete topics and posts

Reported by: wiseacre Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.0-alpha-1
Component: General - Administration Keywords:


I Alpha 1 and rev 1648 too I
1 Create some new topic
2 Post in some topic
3 Delete one post
4 Delete some entire topic
5 Go to Manage/Topics
6 All deleted topics and posts are here

OK, that's good feature. But I (the good old key master) can't remove deleted topics and posts from the database.

I am using FF 3.0.1 and kUbuntu 8.04.

  • Milestone 1.0-beta & XML-RPC deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is a feature, not a bug.

If you want to delete for good, then use phpMyAdmin or another direct SQL method.

Collecting rubbish in the database can't be feature

It'd be a nice feature if the ability to delete from the database was available too (especially with a pseudo-cron implemented rolling delete of older-than-specified stuff).

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from reopened to closed

This is a safety net to stop teh same unique id being used twice on topics and posts and users.

This can occur when admins migrate from one database to another and somehow reset the auto_increment on the unique id.

We won't be adding "real" topic/post deletion in core. Some people don't like having "dead" data in their database, but it really has little to no effect on the operation of the application.

Having said that it can be done via plugin if you really want it.

Sorry, back to wontfix.
