Vanilla 2.6 is here! It includes security fixes and requires PHP 7.0. We have therefore ALSO released Vanilla 2.5.2 with security patches if you are still on PHP 5.6 to give you additional time to upgrade.

Users unable to delete their own comments [RESOLVED]

I'm running 2.5.1 (this also happened in 2.5.)

I have conf/config.php:$Configuration['Vanilla']['Comments']['AllowSelfDelete'] = true; set.

Users have the option to delete their own comments, they can access this function through the gear wheel on their posts. However, when they try to, the following happens:

  1. a confirmation dialogue pops up, I click Okay
  2. a lightbox with a "processing" sort of animation appears
  3. a message appears in the bottom-left saying: "You don't have permission to do that" with a little lightbulb icon
  4. the modal lightbox doesn't disappear, requiring the page to be reloaded to do anything again.
