#3675 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

You should be able to delete forum topics even when they have no posts

Severity: normal Version: 1.5

For some reason, forum topics are sometimes posted without any posts. I've never seen this problem anywhere else, so it's probably an issue with some custom functionality on However, it raises the problem that these forum topics can't be deleted. The Delete Topic button doesn't show up, and if you try to access the delete function by direct URL, you get a white screen.

I'm looking at bp_forums_delete_topic() and it looks like the problem might be at the bbPress level, which would be a shame, but we should look into it in any case. Deleting a forum topic should not be dependent on deleting its child posts.

I remember fixing an issue (zombie threads) in 1.5; I don't mean to say that there are not further bugs, but I wonder if we can find out how to recreate somewhere other than the website.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

(In [5388]) Rearrange groups/single/forum/topic.php template so that admin links and reply markup appears even when, because of a malfunction, there are no posts in the topic. Fixes #3675
