I have been looking for a delete Forum function (NOT trying to get rid of the FORUM module) but can't find one. If there is no delete function then I'm thinking I could change the parent FORUM to the 'TRASH' and that might do it ...or not? Anyone gone through this? I am using 8.1.7.

The other question that I am wondering about is, Can you merge one FORUM into another FORUM. If there is no function for this than I am thinking I could move each topic into the other FORUM. Any experience on  merging Forums?

Thanks for the help!

Go to Admin Zone Structure Forums Edit forum, click edit for the forum you want to delete, and check delete in the Actions Section.


Do you have a Samsung Galaxy S / Galaxy S II ? If so, why not check out my ScreenFree FM Radio .

Thanks temp but there is no action section and no choice to delete let alone a checkbox to check.

There should be a reason for that, so check for an alert box at the top of the edit page that says something like this:
This forum cannot be deleted as it is currently configured for a specific use by the Reported posts forum configuration option.

Yes, the alert is there so I went in to the configuration and changed it which allowed me to delete the FORUM. Thanks Temp!
