    If you have javascript disabled you should goto the user control panel > options > and choose the standard editor. The wysiwyg editor requires javascript. As I said, some features won't function. But vBulletin will operate.

    You can split a post from a thread and move that split post into any forum that you want.

    If you want you can request an admin demo and play with vBulletin as administrator on our server for 24 hours to try it out.

    What it does is that when you delete a topic or a post, instead of deleting it entirely from the database, it will move it to a forum designated as "trash can". I am not concerned with deleting topics since I think you guys do have a multi-mod like feature but can it be used for individual posts as well?

    ALSO: stop comparing with IPB... IPB is having such features because hackers like me have built these... it's good to have a forum filled with a load of features, but when the codes are stealed from the coders without a single credit, it doesn't worth the job made by the modders...
    WTF dude, I asked if similar feature existed in VB that IPB had, unlike you I am not interested in religious wars. Just trying to see if this software fulfills what the community needs.

    You can setup a forum with permissions to now view it. You can move all threads into it and only allow your staff to see it. I have this done on my site and called it 'archive' and on another site 'trash'.

    As alternative you can soft delete posts and threads. This way users won't see the posts anymore, but staff can still manage the posts and decide to move it or undelelete it (or delete forever).

    I think if a user currently runs IPB as forum software and wants to migrate to vBulletin it is quite normal for a user to see if features they use frequently is also in vBulletin. This way it might be worth to migrate. It is a pre-sales question after all.

    Reason for Deletion (optional):

    What it allows you to do is to soft delete posts and threads, making them invisible for normal users but you can still check up on something if you need to.
