Hope someone can help with these two issues …

1. What exactly is <% if DeleteLink %>? Where do I turn this on or off? What does make it appear and fro what user groups?
There is an author who sees this link but cannot actually delete the post.

2. How can I display the admin features (like move topic to other forum, markt it as an announcement …) to other groups, like my forum moderator?

Are you running the latest master version of forum?

DeleteLink relates to ( and checks that the user has permission to delete it. Make sure you're not caching things you shouldn't if people see it and don't actually have access to delete the post.

The admin forum features are shown if you have moderate rights ( so will show to them.
