Deleting a shadow topic

Post by lavalamp213 »

Hi- Can someone tell me how I go about deleting a shadow topic without deleting the topic it is a shadow of?

I read it is in the MCP but I am unable to locate a "delete shadow topic" option.

Thanks!

In the MCP, it's a link next to the shadow itself.

Hi - Thanks but I don't see it in the moderator logs.
I see that I moved the post but the shadow doesn't appear.

All I see is this:

It links to the one I want to keep.

Am I looking under the wrong tab?

Could you maybe give me more details about where in the MCP I'll see this option?

Thank you.

KevC didn't mention anything about moderator logs !?

Navigate to the topiclist where you can see the shadow topic in the topiclist. Use Topic tools to enter the Moderator Panel
We should embrace problems, without which there wouldn't be any solutions.

Open the forum you want and then just click MCP at the top of the page. You'll see a list of all the topics and the link I showed.
