I’m not seeing how to delete a post that I recently made.
And thank you very much for your work on the site. I have appreciated it so much

There is a little cross in the row of icons in the top right of the post you want to delete. Not sure if you can see that?

Next to the “!” And “ thumbs up”?

Must be just moderators who can delete, I know the post you're on about so will delete for you.

Hi Mark,

That function is disabled in this forum. I also do not see the little x for deleting messages in me messages.

¿?

five minutes later

Now I see it. ¿ does it disable itself after a certain time ?

Lol, i'm not sure. I know I can delete posts as a moderator, don't even think I can enable it for others. I'm not a super moderator, only Stephen can make changes like that. :)

Now a few hours later the x for deleting disappeared ... So it looks like the deleting function is only available for some time and then it is deactivated.

Being an Administrator too of a dedicated Astronomy forum I found this settings in phpBB and so the question is answered ...

According to the time set in there it is deactivated and setting 0 zero means it is disabled e.g. it is allowed, = deleting, all the time.
