Deleting/moving a post

Sorry if I'm being spectacularly dim, but I can't see where/how to delete or move one of my posts. Can it be done?

Example - this morning I put a post in the wrong forum (commuting instead of cafe) and immediately I realised (wihin a few minutes of posting) I tried to delete or move it. Couldn't see how to do either, so I've asked mods to move it for me please. But to be able to delete own posts would be useful. Ta.

You need to report your post if you want it moved, then the mods will do it for you.

You should be able to delete your own posts thought (buttons on the lower right of the post window) - unless it's the first post on the thread, as this is treat differently.

If it is the first post you will need to report it too as it is considered deleting the thread by the software.

Cheers,

I have just tried to delete one of my own post where I had mistakenly posted twice and it wouldn't let me, it just throw up an error message :wacko:

That's due to a bug which is showing both the soft and hard delete options when it shouldn't.

You can delete your own posts, but you need to use the right-hand-side button and NOT the bottom delete button.

I have tried to delete a post this evening. When you say the "right hand side" button, do you mean the "Remove" button which is to the right of the "Reason for deletion" box? I was looking for two delete buttons.

Sorry, yes, use the Remove button on the right and ignore (if it's visible) the Delete Now button as that shouldn't be displayed.
