Archived discussions still allow posts to be deleted


(Ashish Saihgal) #1

Perhaps just a moot point -

Users still have the ability to delete whatever they posted. Does that not change the frozen discussion in a way? One might accidentally delete a vital reply and leave a gap in the discussion.

Should the option to delete replies not be disabled if topic is frozen? I think at the very least it should perhaps be configurable to let forum administrators decide which way they want to go.

Delete meaning, edit to a new revision that says (removed by author), not actually delete.

Still, you are right, this should not be possible in an archived topic unless you are a moderator @eviltrout.

Confirmed on try.discourse.org, this is still an issue.

@eviltrout can you add that to your list – unless you are a staff member you should not be able to delete (your own) posts from an archived topic.

I’ve fixed this in master, it will go out with our next deploy:
