Not a bug Comments on profile posts can't be soft-deleted


Well-known member

On my forum I grant my members the permission "Manage profile posts on own profile" which allows them to delete any profile post and also any profile post comment. By default (I think) the system only the member to soft-delete those profile posts (which is fine because hard-deletions aren't a good idea imho) however when they delete a profile post comment the system doesn't asks for a deletion reason and when the member confirms the action the profile post comments gets hard-deleted from the DB.

Imho it is a design issue that deserves a "Future Fix".

I think it's the same problem that prevents XenForo to allow people to like profile post comments.

By definition, this is not a bug. It's simply not a feature that's present. You can look for a suggestion (pretty sure it's there).
