Can't delete thread if I select tick box

This discussion is related to the Split / Merge (FE) addon.

If I check the tick box next to a thread I get the message:

Take Action: Delete/Merge

I can Merge (and Split) fine, but if I select 'Delete' I get the following error:

Permission Problem

You don't have permission to do that.

I can delete the thread if I use the options.

Any clues as to what I need to do?

Thanks.

  • Oh man... you need to look into the source code for this one.
    Find this piece of text:
    You don't have permission to do that then find in which specific cases you get that error message.

    It might be with just a delete action, which I assume.

    Maybe with a delete action from the options menu an extra token will be sent and with split / merge that token is forgotten.

    Underdog - thanks for the reply.

    Could you suggest what program would be best to do that search?

    grep

    or grep alternatives.

    If you are unlucky enough on be on windoze, I remember using a program called agent ransack

    grep is your friend.

    Thanks, but the issue was trying to find the text site wide.

    The agent ransack program did the job perfectly.

    Hi, I can't tell from the above how this problem was answered. I also can't delete multiple messages using the split / merge option that pops up on the lower left when I check multiple discussions.

    I found "You don't have permission to do that" in two files:

    applications\dashboard\views\home\permission.php
    and
    library\core\functions.error.php

    Neither file is helpful in determining what might be the problem for why I can't delete multiple discussions. @whu606 what did you find to fix this problem? Thanks.

    @StumpyJoe

    Sorry, I never found out what was causing the issue, just how to find where the error message was.

  • I realized I asked this earlier, and I think I found the problem (by "I" I mean @peregrine).

    Line 291of applications/vanilla/controllers/class.moderationcontroller.php says
    $this->Permission('Vanilla.Comment.Delete', TRUE, 'Category', 'any');
    There is no vanilla.comment it SHOULD say
    $this->Permission('Vanilla.Comments.Delete', TRUE, 'Category', 'any');
    I made that little edit, and I'm able to delete multiple discussions just fine.

    You can read the other thread about this here

  • All I see is a checkbox but nothing else. I can select as many checkboxes as I please but then what should happen? No popup no options no drop down list.

    What should happen after selecting few checkboxes?

  • Lucks like that bug in applications/vanilla/controllers/class.moderationcontroller.php has already been fixed in 2.1b1. :)
