Attempting to delete a forum post

When I tried to delete a forum post, it was confusing and unsuccessful.  I was already logged in, made a forum post, then decided to delete it.
1) First I saw a screen stating "You need to login in order to delete posts within this forum" with a login form.  I entered my login information and was returned to the same screen where I entered my login again.
2) I saw a screen stating "Delete post" - "Are you sure you want to delete this post?" - "Reason for deletion" (entered a reason)
3) Was shown the same login screen stating "You need to login in order to delete posts within this forum"  I correctly entered my password again
4) I was again returned to the same screen stating "You need to login in order to delete posts within this forum"  I correctly entered my password again
5) "Information" - "You cannot delete posts in this forum"

This seems broken to me.

Re: Attempting to delete a forum post

I had similar issue today - sans having to re-login. I wanted to delete post, it asked me for a reason and on submit said i cannot delete posts here (which i was always able to). I tried a few more times with the same error. It never reported success but! - when i refreshed the thread my post was deleted.  Smiley Surprised

Re: Attempting to delete a forum post

This is a known issue.  Sometimes it takes a few attempts before it sticks.  It has to do (I think) with the SID the software uses.  I don't have an ETA on when it will be fixed.
