Recycle Board

A recycle board is where topics or posts which have been deleted by an administrator or moderator can be stored. If a forum does not have such a board then any topics or posts which are removed cannot be restored, unless a database backup contains the topics or posts which were deleted.

To create a recycle board, please follow these steps:

  1. Create a new board that can only be viewed by administrators and moderators.
  2. Go to Admin > Boards > Settings and tick the box enable recycling of deleted topics
  3. In the drop down menu which follows select the board that was created in step one and click save.

{{ Template:Version specific|small=yes|version=2.0|content= Any members who can view the recycle board and have the permission to move topics will see a restore link in the top right corner of the topic or post, alongside other moderation options. Clicking this will return a topic or post to the board where it was originally posted.
