Hide/Show single posts in the overall discussion


I think there is still no similar topic as mine. I would like to have a feature that allows me as admin/mod to delete the posts BUT the regular users would have the chance to click on the removed post and see it if they want. So I have a long story discussion under one topic but there are some posts not worth to be seen so I delete them but anyone can still if they wish to see what’s behind it.

For example. I see something not ok, I edit it and then delete. Regular user can have the same option as me mod/admin to “show hidden messages” but of course WITHOUT options to get it back.

Is there a way to somehow ‘share’ the privilege with ACL (access control list)-like option to do it?

Thank you,

You could flag to threshold but this will penalize the users whose post you flagged. It will hide the post in the manner you describe though.

Could the “Summarize This Topic” feature do what you’re after?

eg. try it with this topic


Yes, that looks like what I would like to have : ). Thanks, now I need to find out how to use it.
