I'm trying to figure out how to dosomething pretty simple - delete a post. Can only a mod do that? If so, how do I make myself a mod as well as admin? Thanks!

Normally an admin has the ability and permissions to do everything possible on the forum. To delete a single post, you normally have a button next to each post on the forum. If you don't see a button there, try using the default theme in english if you are not already.

You'll see a button in the top-right of each post that says "Remove" with a red X next to it, just click that.  You need to have Javascript enabled for this to work I believe, but I've never tried it without to see if there's a backup.  Anyways, if you're wanting to remove a whole topic, scroll to the bottom, and there's buttons on the left, and one will say "Remove Topic".

Of course, the locations I specified are on the default theme.

Hi LynnB, figured this out already - or do you still need assistance on this? :)
