    Good one..
    Question: a deleted post would become a thread in trash forum ?
    How about deleted profile post ?

    Nope, it doesn't.
    And I don't want to do it because it is messy and good for nothing :p

    What happens if you undelete a post from the trash, will it go back tot he thread/forum it came from?

    Just tested and realized that it doesnt actually delete a posts, just moves it to that thread.

    Would it be possible to:
    • Delete the thread AND move it to the trash forum?
    • When moving it, to note from what forum it was moved from?

    1. Yes.
    2. What do you mean?

    @VincentU Do you want me to create a proper addon for this?

    Well if I decide to undelete it, I would have to guess which forum to put it back into. So if it could remember where it was moved from some how, that would be awesome.

    You mean a redirect?

    Im not sure if a permanent redirect can work in that way but basically, if I delete a thread from forum "General Chat", it will get moved to "Trash" forum. So if I decide to restore/undelete it, the thread would know to restore itself in the "General Chat" forum.

    I don't think that can happen without a more advanced addon.

    Thanks. It does sound pretty complicated.

    This would be some much easier if there was a built in option to view all deleted threads in from forums.

    As a suggestion, a separate page or view (without actually moving those threads from their original forum) that would list all deleted threads from all forums would be AWESOME!

    Seems like a clash with XenPorta.

    did you actually manage to get this working as i would be very interested in being able to restore moved thread to their original forum section?

    Another option is to delete the thread AND move it to the trash forum

    $dw->set('discussion_state', 'deleted');
    below add (xxx is the node where to move the thread)
    $dw->set('node_id', 'xxx');
    Change this in both files
    In library\XenForo\Model\Thread.php and In library\XenForo\Model\InlineMod\Thread.php
