Deleting responses to forum topics

If you change your mind about a response that you've posted to a forum topic, you can delete it from the discussion thread.

Before you begin

Anyone who has posted a response to a topic in a stand-alone forum can delete that response. Forum owners can delete any topic response in the forums that they own, and the Forums administrator can delete any topic response in any forum.

To delete a response to a community forum topic, you must be the community owner or the person who added the response.

About this task

Deleting the response to a discussion topic deletes the content of the response only. A placeholder for the entry is still visible in the forum, but the entry is marked as deleted.

When deleting a topic response, you have the option of entering a reason for deleting the topic. This reason is displayed in the entry placeholder when the response is deleted.

Procedure

To delete a response to a discussion topic, complete the following steps.

  1. Open the topic thread containing the response that you want to delete.
  2. Click Delete under your response.
  3. Optional: Enter a reason for deleting the response. This reason is displayed in the entry placeholder when the response is deleted.
  4. Click Delete.
