Hi Paul and other mods,
I was wondering if it''s possible when deleting posts to make the entry disappear as well. For example, one fiona king appears to have posted a lot, and all the entries are gone. Makes checking the recent posts list challenging: Open the thread, nope no post there... but if I skip all the ones (s)he posted to, I may miss posts by others in the thread.
Thanks for looking, even if there is nothing to be done about it.
Gani

Fiona King is a spammer from china. She rapid posted 25 posts about about a casino before I locked her account and then went about the work of deleting all of her posts one at a time.

I guess there is no way to make the entry for the post disappear in the, um, I guess it'd be an index? After you have deleted the spammer's posts, the recent topics list shows the deleted post as the last post in the thread. Maybe I just loaded the page at the point when the database hadn't caught up with the fact that the post had been deleted?
I did understand that fiona king was a spammer since I saw 25 posts in the recent topics list. What a pain to have to delete all the posts by hand. Another example of your kindness in maintaining the forums, for which thank you loads!
