How to see who deleted a post?
« on: March 19, 2017, 01:11:28 PM »
I saw a deleted post in recycle bin. And I checked the moderator log, there is no record of that post being deleted by moderator.

So, who actually deleted the post?

Check the administration log, that may show the user, if you have user permissions set to allow a user to delete their own messages, it won't show up in the moderator log...

if a user has permission to delete their own posts/topics it will not show up any log.

Thanks for hint. I guess I need to check each membergroup permission.

Marking solved then. If you have any other questions regarding this topic, or if you can't find any problem with the permissions, by all means, mark this unsolved and let us know. :)
