Moderators and Admins cannot delete individual postings in threads if these were posted from UBB.classic (before the upgrade from UBB.classic to UBB.threads 6.5.5 and then UBB.threads 7.0).

The posting is not deleted. Instead, the body of said posting is changed into: Deleted by name.

Wait, I now notice this also happens in new threads... is this intended behaviour? It can't be, right?

Okay, I now see this is intended behaviour I'm not really happy with. The reason is that deleting a posting A would result in all replies to posting A becoming orphans.

This is an issue in Threaded Mode, but no one at our forum uses Threaded Mode. We all use Flat Mode.

I propose this solution:
Implement a check box in the admin panel that enables you to choose between the current way of deleting postings or actually deleting said posting and moving its orphans one level higher.

Yes, this is designed behaviour due to the .threaded mode option. I'm going to move this to the feedback/suggestions forums so it gets on the list as this always tends to cause some confusion.

Rick, wasn't the admin supposed to have the option to turn off threaded mode completely in v7? I think I read something about this in the upcoming features list.
