Deleted topics remain in forum list

Post by Acorn »

When a member on my board creates a new topic, and then deletes it, the topic remains in the forum list until a moderator/admin deletes it completely. If you click on the topic you get the message 'the requested topic does not exist'.

I suspect there is a simple reason for this, but I can't figure it out.

(phpBB 3.0.6, quite a lot of mods - I'll give details if they're needed)

Thanks.

All sorted.

I found a stray bit of code that had been left behind in includes/functions_admin.php when I was uninstalling a mod (autogroups), and removing it has solved the problem.

Thanks for your time! :D
