Problem is that my members can't delete their own messages from forum. Only moderators can do it. So how members could delete their own messages?

Hi @Ams

Please check the permission of each forum so that members can delete their own topic/message. Admin Panel > General > Categories and Forums > Forum Permissions Control > Choose forum you want to modify and hit Advance Mode > Look for Members and check 'Delete its own messages and attachments' and save

@Russel Forum rights are ok, but still we have problems. They can delete messages from topics ONLY if they have started them. I don't know what I can do anymore. Everything seems to be good but things just doesn't work like they should.

@Ams to be able to delete your own post you must have special rights which moderators have.
Are you sure you have the correct rights for your members?

Also could you provide us with an image of the rights please to check?

Actually Luffy, a member can delete their own post ONLY if they were the last one to post and then only that post. To delete any others posts including their own once someone else has posted after it, requires moderation permissions. They can delete their own posts though.
