    Default Delete Post option in edit....

    Hey Robert!
    Can we get a "delete post" button under "edit" for mistakes? It can be a soft delete so you can still read what was deleted. That's the way we do it on another vbulletin forum I moderate. It really helps when you make a stupid mistake.
    Thanks!

    Hi Adam

    It's already there...

    Click on 'Edit' and click one of the following buttons in the edit menu... Save - Go Advanced - DELETE - Cancel

    Just click the delete button and you get an option to delete the message and give a reason for deletion

    It used to be there as I'm sure I've used in the past I'm sure but I must admit I wanted to remove something recently and I couldn't find it. I personally prefer boards that allow total hard editing as sometimes there are reasons why you might want to go back and delete even old posts.
