Re: Edit Function is missing

Delete is disabled presently due to member's abusing the function resulting in DB issues. I don't have an ETA for when it will be restored. If it's particularly necessary you are able to remove the content from your own posts via the edit function but the post itself is still there, this doesn't cause database holes and gaps.

Re: Edit Function is missing

isn't TAM your standard Linux / Apache / mySQL / PHP type solution? What back-end is used, just curious.

Re: Edit Function is missing

IIRC vBulletin, so yes. Not sure how deleting can cause issues, that's pretty standard db feature



Sigh, my wife gives me the speaking treatment.

Re: Edit Function is missing

MySQL should have decent compaction and repair features... Ok, not Oracle 11 but serviceable. Maybe integrity constraint issues?

Given the nature of the content here, the ability for a poster to make their threads dissapear is pretty important. Hopefully it isn't long until it's back.

Re: Edit Function is missing

That is weird. I'm not a real database expert (although I have played one for a pretty good salary) but any modern database should be able to handle any number of inserts and deletes without trouble.

In fact, I've written my own variable-length persistent storage library that can handle very large numbers of insertions and deletions. So I know it can be done.

Always remember the LD motto: "Sex isn't important!!!"

Re: Edit Function is missing

I did a serious LAMP project a few years ago and the issue was not the physical database like writing bytes to the disk, it was keeping all the data consistent. If a post is spread across multiple tables and the code does not enforce constraints well, or constraints aren't defined well, you delete some and leave orphans, which gets worse over time...

Then the software can't deal with those, yikes...
