Hello,

I wanted to respond to a new topic on our football-language website but when I added both a link and an embedded post (we have the add on) I am unable to edit or remove the post. The sidebars have also been shifted to the bottom of the page. My cursos cannot click on anything on the post either.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

Damian

I should add that this is not a problem on other posts/topics.

@languagecaster I believe you have a cache issue. Ensure you have cleared up all caches if you have any cache plugins. Also make sure you clean all caches on your browser.

If nothing else works, you need to edit or delete the post in the database

@tutrix Thanks again. However, I have no idea where I can find the post/database - any tips?

Log into phpMyAdmin on your server

and then search for the post in the table "xxx_wpforo_posts"

Thanks for the responses/advice. We couldn't seem to find the post in order to edit/delete it. Not really sure what to do next?

@languagecaster 

you just have to search in the table "xxx_wpforo_posts" for the postid (915) of this post

@languagecaster,

The post with postid=915 should be deleted. There is no way to fix it. It has wrong HTML code and crashes the topic layout.

You can search the post and delete it in wpForo > Moderation admin page as well.
