A tiny question

Post by Angel-girl »

One of the admins on our site has moved a topic to another forum and forgot to uncheck the "leave a shadow topic in this forum" box. Now, it's not crucial to get rid of it, but it's just sitting there, looking ugly and not doing anything. Is there a way to get rid of that shadow topic? When I click it, it tells me that the topic doesn't exist.

Thanks :)

The trick I recall working (both for phpBB2 and 3) is to go into the Moderator control panel from within that forum. Check the box for the shadow topic, then select to delete.

I hate those things hanging around too. ;)
