    Doh! peterska2, thank you very much. I'm afraid that idea just completely never occurred to me (and that would be the reason I asked...hehe).

    Thanks!

    Personally I would move the one thread by doing a 'split thread' and putting the post that you have split from the thread into the deleted items forum with the same thread title as the original thread but adding the post number to the thread title. If you wanted to move 2 or more posts then I would just put the post number in the title part of each post.

    That's the way that I do it on my vB RC3 and on my IPB sites so it works well for me.

    Of course another option is to copy the whole thread into the deleted items forum and then on the publicly veiwable one just delete the problem posts after that.

That way I can review the deleted posts, and in my case, we just leave them there, in case of complaints by the edited member, ect. If I find a post was moved to the deleted board, and was done improperly, then I can just move it back to restore it.. It stopped a LOT of squabbling.. And if you have mods that refuse to do that, or keep 'accidentally' deleting posts instead of moving them to the private deleted forum, then you just take away their mod privileges

    I very much want to use this type of tool. We actually are having some issues with one user where we MUST keep track of her posts, even if we delete them, for legal reasons. I have a forum set up in our admin category, private, for moving deleted threads to. Since we have more than one admin/mod, this helps us all know what's been going on when we log in. If someone is complaining about having been edited, we can read the posts in question, and then know why another admin has removed it.

    This works just fabulously for removing a thread. (The move without redirect option.) However, I can't seem to find a way to move only ONE post in a thread. If we have a really great thread, a dozen or more pages long, and one bad apple comes in to mess it all up, we only want to remove that one single post. But I can only find options to delete a post, not to move it, while leaving the rest of the otherwise fine thread right where it's at. Am I missing this option somewhere, or is it not possible to move only one post of a long thread?

    nope. can't cope up with anything I'm afraid.

    You might be able to do it with hard coding/template changes but not with permissions settings.

    That would work.

    It will be a nightmare to do especially if you have a lot of forums as each super mod will need setting for each forum to not be able to delete posts.

    I'm just thinking to see if there is any other ways that I can come up with for you.

    I Need a way

    to take away deleting posts permission from the super moderators
    I have a mod forum and want the posts moved there for my review rather than deleted THere was a hack for vb2 that did this I would prefer not to hack could I just make the super moderators mods for all the forums then would the not deleting permission work

    thanks
