I can't find a way to delete a post. I can go to EDIT and delete the contents, but I can't find a way to just delete the whole post, for example if a double post has been made.

yup
go to edit & click the box that says 'delete' in the lower right corner

or

edit then edit again (lower one) & check the 'delete message' box.




sorry,I'm not good @ putting my thought into written words.

It depends on the post. If it's the first post then the ability to delete it is not available as doing so would delete all the replies. Of course this doesn't help if it's only a duplicate so that's what your friendly moderator can zap.

We changed this a few years ago when some guys deleted their question and took out 2 pages of great replies with it. Now, only replies can be deleted.

Hope that explains it a bit further.

OK, thanks, that's what I wanted to know. Actually I was just kind of wondering how to do it if I ever needed to, so I was just surfing around on one of my posts and didn't see any way to do it.

How about making it to where a post can be deleted if there are no reply? Is that possible?

You can do that now, can't you?
(folks will see "this message has been deleted by gearheads78. Reason")
I'll try it.
Not sure if you can do it if it's the first post of the thread.

Anytime anyone wants something deleted, just send me a PM.
