I made a new thread in the Misc board and made a mistake in the title. I tried to use the "delete post" option which was clearly available, yet the forum would not allow me to utilize it thus -

You cannot delete your own topics in this board.

Why is the option presented to the users when in fact it cannot be completed?  Huh

Edit: I tried to report it to a moderator to have the bad thread deleted but got this message -

You can't report your own post to the moderator, that doesn't make sense!

Uh -yes it does ...

Man, it'd sure be nice if I got a response in less than a week like the last post I made on this board.

By the way, speaking as a very experienced Admin on SMF, you probably have some permissions messed up for certain groups or boards. I just removed this post to test it here, and I was able to on this board (I'm now putting the post back).

Oh, by the way, you are still running a version of SMF that is out of date, even for the 1.x.x series. The latest version of this series is 1.1.19 and you are still running 1.1.11.

But the most up to date version is the 2.x.x series ...

I think the problem is that SMF doesn't want the first post in a thread removed. I'd have to experiment with it some.

We are aware the version is old.

Good question about deleting a post. Would be good to know how to do that.
