Hi Paul and other mods,
I was wondering if it''s possible when deleting posts to make the entry disappear as well. For example, one fiona king appears to have posted a lot, and all the entries are gone. Makes checking the recent posts list challenging: Open the thread, nope no post there... but if I skip all the ones (s)he posted to, I may miss posts by others in the thread.
Thanks for looking, even if there is nothing to be done about it.
Gani

Fiona King is a spammer from china. She rapid posted 25 posts about about a casino before I locked her account and then went about the work of deleting all of her posts one at a time.

I guess there is no way to make the entry for the post disappear in the, um, I guess it'd be an index? After you have deleted the spammer's posts, the recent topics list shows the deleted post as the last post in the thread. Maybe I just loaded the page at the point when the database hadn't caught up with the fact that the post had been deleted?
I did understand that fiona king was a spammer since I saw 25 posts in the recent topics list. What a pain to have to delete all the posts by hand. Another example of your kindness in maintaining the forums, for which thank you loads!

There are ways for me to fix this, but I notified the coderanch staff of the bug and am gonna leave it for now so they can see it.
