  • [Forum] Retrieve deleted threads

    Is there anyway to retrieve deleted threads as I have just deleted a number of threads that I wanted to move to a new forum area. For some reason I got distracted and instead of moving I hit remove

    Which tool were you using to move/delete these threads?

      I tagged them all in the forum and then used the moderators tool. Now normally it ould ask you if you want to remove permanently or not and ask you for a password. However I was also in the admin CP so I suppose this is why it did not ask me for a password

        Normally you would get this message prior to deleting the selected threads.

        Have you checked the following:

        Settings -> Moderation -> Deleted Items -> Threads

        to see if the threads were soft deleted?

          Wow talk about luck. Some time back I installed a mod to move threads to the recycle bin and it seems this is what I did here so I managed to get them all back

              Of course if you didn't have that mod, the problem would never have occurred.

                Yes I would have removed the threads and not been able to find them again

                  I'm going to need some help with this cause I just accidentally deleted a big thread, but still have it in my backups mysql database file but need some code help. There is no photos in the thread, no polls taken, no attachments whatsoever, only posts which should make this easier I assume?
