Undelete discussion

rbrahmsonrbrahmson "You may say I'm a dreamer / But I'm not the only one"NY ✭✭✭

We're again evaluating Vanilla for a closed group forum. The question of how to undelete a deleted discussion came up. Yes, we know about the prompt, responsibility, etc. But real life is what it is, so how does the administrator undeletes a discussion that was mistakenly deleted?

    Assuming the deletion was through the model, you should be able to restore from the changelog in the dashboard.

    Thank you @hgtonight ! That is very helpful.

    Alas, I just realized how crowded is the log... Is there a filter function for the log so I could find the entry to be recovered?

    @rbrahmson not currently. The model is nice enough to be able to create something via an addon.

    Definitely an opportunity to improve the UX for admins here.
