Only Admins Can Delete Posts

Post by masterchief07 » Mon Jul 18, 2005 2:54 am

Does anyone have a mod that does this?

Or how about a mod that moves deleted posts to another forum only accessible by admins and can only be restored by admins? Also, one that if the posts are hidden, the posts count does not decrease.

I found some mods like this but for the first one, the person said DO NOT Download, and the second one the link was dead.

So can anyone help me?

This hack will move posts to a specified forum if a user or (if set) moderator wants to "delete" them.

The administrator can delete posts at all times. Moderators can delete posts directly, too, if you enable it in the admin control panel.

The act of "deleting" posts is the same as before, the user will do the same work and get the same messages.

Set the forum permissions of the one it goes to to Admin(Hidden)

The truth is out there.
Unfortunately they will not let you anywhere near it!

I tried that one already and I got an error. Do you know of any other versions?

You really dont need a mod for this.

There are forum permissions built into the admin control panel for each forum. Just set "delete" to admin-only for all places.

As for this restore forum, you can make it so mods can move topics (since you already would have disabled their delete abilities), and have them move topics to that special forum. Again, in the permissions, you can set it to only allow admin viewing, so you're good to go there again.

So, you see, phpBB can do this without any annoying code changes ^^
