          If the threads or posts in question belong to topics which have been deleted try the admincp / maintenance / general update tools / remove orphan threads and remove orphan posts functions.

          Otherwise you may have to physically delete the entries via phpmyadmin or a sql command.

          The manual advises you delete threads and posts before deleting the user. Or it did once upon a time.

            Orphan Threads and Orphan Posts are those that are not assigned to a channel. It doesn't delete guest posts. What is the issue with deleting them in the front-end of the site?

                What is the error you get when you click on the "Edit" link within a post?

                  I do not get any errors. If I click on "edit" nothing happens, except when I do it quickly and more often in a row I see this little yellow box on the top of the forum reading " Working ..."

                  *Update* I can delete but I cannot edit.
