Solved How do you remove Shadow Topics?

Post by PotSmuggle on March 8th 2015, 4:49 pm

I have been trying to figure out how I can remove some Shadow Topics on my forum but nothing I tried seems to work. I tried moving the shadow topic into the original and I tried to see if it leaves after posting in the topic but it's still there.

When you move it, are you checking the yes box to leave a shadow topic?

Hello,

If you move a topic and you leave it's shadow there it will stay there for as long as it's set to. So just be patient and sooner or later it will be gone! Smile

Is there a place in the ACP where I can change the time limit? Also, is there no way I could remove them manually?

I suppose if you move the topic again (do not tick the box) to where it was before then move it back to where you currently have it, it will get rid of the shadow topic. Just make sure you do NOT tick leave shadow topic when moving it

Try this: open the topic itself not the shadow topic. Try moving where the shadow topic is.

The Shadow Topic doesn't show up in the topic list when I'm selecting the topics to merge, so I can't merge them. :/

There should be topic Mod icons at the bottom of the topic somewhere.

I can only do that from inside the Original Topic though because clicking the Shadow Topic would redirect me there. Is there a way to select it for merging outside of the topic? The moderation mode thingy is the only thing I know thar allows me to select the Shadow Topic but doesn't give you the option to merge, the only options there are Delete, Move, Unlock, Lock, Announcement, Sticky, and Normal.

Alright thanks! It would be great if someone was to implement a way to remove these things, it's weird how you can't move or merge them.

Could you send me a test account with permission to moderate the areas with shadow topics. Also post links to shadow topics.

Hello all,

If I remember rightly blackeye This has a timed setting for about 3 days and it will get removed when the topic starter reads the post that was moved by clicking the one marked Moved.
