delete posts and threads


Hi guys,

easy, easy questions for you, im really sure about that.

i cant find an answer in the frequently asked questions.
how can i delete a thread or post?

Im sorry, usually i use only vbulletin but my baby forum has xenforo, but i dont see a moderation button or so. i´m in the right usergroup, admin and moderator, but theres still no moderation button anywhere. and i cant find anything in the backend, too, to delete these stupid russian spam posts from my forums.

thanks in advance,

The moderator group doesn't confer mod permissions by default. Normally you would setup your mod permissions here:

Admin CP -> Users -> Moderators

Then you will see inline checkboxes for threads and posts.


I´m super-moderator and i have double checked my moderating permissions.
But there is still no box for me to delete posts.

Screen attached, where should that inline box be?

Doesn't matter if you are a super mod or a normal mod if the admins don't give you the right permissions:

Edit: and the 'delete' link should be right beside the date:
