Wow, that sounds great! Big thanks, Ken!

Then two links are provided, one to undelete the post and one to permanently delete the post.
The buttons for undeleting and for permanently deleting a post are only present for admins and moderators, right? And it would be useful when it would not be impossible for standard users to completely
delete a posting/thread via URL tricks
(e.g. when they type in the address line of their browser example.com/topic=55&delete=true or something like that. In this case the auth system should look if the person is an admin/moderator. If yes -> delete the topic/post. If no -> error message.)
Just two more questions (hope I am not boring you):
- Is there a way for admins/moderators to read a post which has been deleted by an user without undeleting the post?
- How many additional queries are added to the viewtopic pages (e.g. when a thread has 5 deleted posts)?
Thanks for this great MOD and keep up the good work!
