delete and move a post or thread

I didn't find a way to delete a post, I did. 

Sometimes I might find it useful to delete a post, not only edit it's contents to nothing.

 

I didn't find a way to move a post, that I started but later thought it would have been placed in a different section of the forum.

 

Are there ways to do so or isn't it thought to be useful ?

Re: delete and move a post or thread

I don't think it matters at all where you posted, as long as it is in the appropriate product forums.  I certainly don't only read one of them. 

 

To delete your own post - go to the Options at the right hand of the message, and if it is yours - you can usually delete it - sometimes you can't - I suspect may be if it was the message "replied to" by another user already.  I suppose to move it, before you deleted it, you could copy it, post it elsewhere, and then delete it.

Thank You Leanne

 

Yes, You are right, the following post blocked me to delete my post. I myself had answered to it and if I had realized the functionality I might have deleted them in reverse order.
