  • Soft Deletes

    I need a reminder. If I want to set it so my Moderator's can only do soft deletes instead of a complete removal from the database how do I set this up? Also, if I want to restore a post deleted how would I do this?

    Thx

    I think by default moderators can only do softdeletes, not hard ones, Smods and up can do both.

      Where can I enable or disable this and how can I add back a soft deleted post?

        how could I allow when mods delete a post, it is only moved to another box that admins or Smods could view (soft del) ?

          Wow I didn't know about this. I'd like to have regular moderators be able to totally delete everything - not just soft delete.

                Thanks for that. Is there a way to recover soft deletes though?

                  Yessir. When you soft delete it leaves behind a placeholder of sorts with links that allow you to view and manage the deleted post. Click on the "manage" link and select undelete. See here for more detailed instructions.
