As admin I can see a deletion message in thread view as the screenshot below. In VB days I set this message to be viewable by members and it helped them understand why their thread was deleted. In Xenforo I can only find a way of showing the deleted message together with the view button, but that defeats the point of deleting the thread. Is there a way of showing it without the view button? If it is not a standard option could anyone give me tips on how to mod this before I start fiddling with templates.
