    I'm having trouble deleting posts, even if there haven't been replies. Is this normal? I hit edit, then click the delete post box, then delete now. However, then I get an error box that says "You do not have permission to access the page that you were trying to. Are you trying to edit someone else's post or trying to access administrative features? Check that you are allowed to perform this action in the Forum Rules. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation."

    Any idea whats up here?

    Thanks.

    I have turned off the ability of members to delete their own threads. When the feature was on, it got abused quite a bit. People were posting really insulting messages and then deleting them before a mod or admin saw it. It caused quite a bit fo problems. Eric

    OK...that makes sense. I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. Now I know it wasn't me!

    Keep up the good work!
