"Deleted Discussions/Comments Visible" do nothing?

edited September 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Apparently, irrespective of whether I have "Deleted Discussions Visible" and "Deleted Comments Visible" selected on my role, it refuses to show deleted comments and discussions. I checked, they're in the database, but they don't seem to appear. Thinking that maybe they were just hidden by the CSS, I looked in the raw html, but they were not visible there either. Did I screw something up upgrading to 1.0.1?

    I had the same issue. Check your forum prefrences.

    D'oh! Is there any way to turn these settings on for all users? I'd write an SQL query, but user preferences are not stored in their own fields.

    Idunno if you can do regex on an update, otherwise I guess you would have to loop through and update the prefrences for each user.

    Good idea for an add-on? Force user-prefrences... sets defaults for new users...

    Well where are the defaults stored?

    EDIT: Bingo. Just add

    $Configuration['PREFERENCE_ShowDeletedDiscussions'] = '1'; $Configuration['PREFERENCE_ShowDeletedComments'] = '1';
    to conf/settings.php

    awesome, i spent about half an hour last night regexing users preferences to default to showing bookmarks/search history etc in the panel. that'll make things slightly easier :)
