Only Admin can Physically Delete Threads?


Active member
Hi, some simple questions I guess:

how can I give ONE normal Super moderator the ability to delete threads permanently? I tried the delete permissions. But, it seems he can only soft-delete, but not permanently remove a topic.

Also, how can I hide a super administrator from appearing in the "Staff Online" display?

Grant the hard delete permission for that moderator in their user permissions.

Hiding staff will be available with 1.2.
