[GUIDE] Recycling Topics
« on: August 11, 2010, 05:51:36 pm »
Whenever a topic is deleted it is for a reason. If you ever want to look back on why it was then just follow this guide.


1 ) Admin-> Boards-> Add a board/category (name is something like "trash")

2 ) Admin-> Boards-> Settings-> Enable recycling

3 ) Choose the board or category that you just made and set it as the board to send the recycled topics to.


That's about it. If you have any questions feel free to ask me.

Yeah, lol that's what I did. There is no need for the normal members to fret (or see for other reasons) because of that board.

Is there a way to count the posts in Recycle Bin to the forum stats ?
I found a small bit of code somewhere on SMF but that didn't work.
So I've employed, both the Recycle Bin & Trash folders. Deleted posts first go into the Recycle Bin. Once we are sure that they are not going to be restored, we move that post/topic into Trash (also hidden from members). That way we can get the posts into the forum totals.
