Unsolved Deleted thread visible for all even if not allowed


  • Hi guys, I've an easy question likely related to me being rusty.

    In one of my forum I'm seeing the deleted threads appearing in the category listing even though "view deleted posts" is active only for moderators. Is it expected? Shouldn't these threads being removed in the category view even if they were not purged but only marked as deleted?

    Thanks, R

    This could be cosmetic but I am not completely sure - however did you consider trying a build via terminal?

    My experience has been any quirky cosmetic behaviours like this (after changing settings, if noticed at the time) are usually fixed by a restart or even better a build, and more so via terminal but ACP instigated build/restart often works too, but if not revert to a ./nodebb build

    Non-privileged users should just see "This topic is deleted!" or "This post is deleted!". Their position is kept because it is rather difficult to keep track of the topics/posts based on who can view the post and who cannot.
