Deleted posts undeleting
I know this has been mentioned in topics elsewhere but there’s so many topics in this forum that I can’t find them at the moment and thought it was time this was asked again.
When topics and posts are deleted they are just set not to display in the front end of the forums. However, there is a bug that if a topic with a single post, ie a spam topic, is deleted, all the previously deleted posts including all the spam magically reappears all through the forum topics.
This is obviously a rather serious bug. Has this been addressed in the most recent bbpress? We are currently running 1.0.3 and I thought it was supposed to be fixed in that version but it hasn’t.
I am now marking spams etc as spam rather than deleting them, hopefully this will fix the issue.
However, it brings up another issue, and that is that there’s no simple way to delete posts etc permanently from the db without doing it manually through sql.
Again, this is a huge omission from the software.
So, my question is, has anyone written a plugin to do this, or are these probs being addressed? Anyone got any info on the status of these probs?
I’ve had to go back and redelete spam so many times it’s not funny, I want working forum software, not a hobby, I’ve got better things to do, as I expect many other bbpress users do too.
Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate all the work that’s gone into bbpress and its plugins, but it’s kind of hard to fathom these sorts of omissions from what is otherwise quite a good system.
