Logged in as the admin, I cannot find where I can delete a users post or my own post.

 

The first place I looked was in the WP Forum Admin Panel and then second place I looked was in forum itself....where I could edit, but not delete.

 

I was hoping for a way to delete forum topics in the admin panel view rather than searching thru each topic in the forum view.

 

Thanks again!

forum topics are deleted on the front end using the Forum Tools (formerly known as the edit tools)...

if you have the pruned database plugin, you can do some topic deletions with a date/forum filter...

I've been looking all around, but cannot seem to find the Forum Tools location on the front end.

In either the forum view or topic view hover the mouse cursor over the row where you want to bring the tools up. The icon should appear over on the left. It currently needs a stronger icon but many of these are also not finalised yet.

I've got everything on and still cannot find the delete topic button. Can you send a screen shot or a little further guidance?

forum admin > admins > Global Admin Options: Have you turned on the option to use the forum edit tools?

Yes, it's all turned on.

 

Still unable to delete forum topics. Based on the pro forums I've used, really, there should just be a button to delete a topic if the admin is logged in.

 

Still no luck.
