XF 1.5 Deleting unapproved threads?


I've set up a feeder which requires me to moderate the thread before it's posted.

If I action the thread 'Delete', it doesn't show for members but I can still see it highlighted red in my forum?

I assumed if I deleted it in the Moderation Queue it's gone, why is it still appearing as deleted in my forum?

Anyway to permanently delete the thread?

Soft deleted threads will still show to those with permission to view them.

You will need to hard delete them to completely remove them - you can select to delete them again and choose the option (if you have the relevant permission).
