Hi,

Not sure if anybody can help... Hopefully they can.

How do I stop users from seeing the option to restore an edited or deleted post?

It was likely edited / deleted for a reason, I certainly don't want users having the choice... ;)

Thanks
DD

There is a Host Setting to enable/disable that Feature under Host Settings -> Display -> "Show Deleted Messages"

Thanks, but I don't think that does what I want (unless I'm being dumb, sorry if i am).

I want the owner of an edited or deleted post to be able to see that post, along with the message we leave.

What I don't want is for them to be able to click the 'restore' button (or whatever its called) that basically negates the point of moderating. Can I turn that off?

Ah sorry i understand now. There is currently no Possibility to hide the "Undelete" Button. That Would require a new Setting for the Access Mask an Can Undelete Flag.

Poo :(

I have to say, whilst I love this product, I'm frankly amazed that nobody has thought of this before - given that 'moderators' exist within the app you'd think somebody would assume you might not want people to be able to undo the moderating 😃

I agree with you, i think the best solution would be...

- If only admin and mods can delete and undelete
- and user can (if there are in a role where there can delete their own posts) should be only allowed to undelete posts that they have deleted them selfs
