A user deleted my threads, how can I restore them?

Discussion in 'Troubleshooting and Problems' started by Dustin Mattison, Mar 15, 2013.

  1. Hello
    I am the super admin. I must have had the wrong settings in place because a registered user was able to delete my threads. I had important information in them and now I can't find them.

    How can I restore the threads the person deleted? How can I make sure no one can do this again?

    If the threads were soft deleted, you should be able to undelete them. If they were hard deleted, you would need a backup of your database on hand and restore it.

    In terms of making sure they don't do it again, go to manage the Registered usergroup settings and set the desired delete threads, delete posts to revoke.

    Do not use revoke as it will be inherited by everything else. Just remove delete permissions.
