Hi all

Issue a NNTP Cancel Message for Messages manualy deleted (by a Moderator for example) from the Forum.

At present, when a Moderator deletes a Message on a Forum, no NNTP 'cancel' Message is issued to the corresponding newsgroup. This means, the message is still accessible via NNTP and replies to the message that was deleted from the forum still gets gated back into the forum leading to 'dangling-threads' with missing first message.

NNTP regularly expires old messages (removes) them, generally speaking people how archive nntp via FUDforum don't want to delete old message. If the message on the forum were to be deleted when it goes away on nntp you'll end up clearing out old archives.

Further more if the forum NNTP mirror is one way (Ex. imports from NNTP but does not sync replies) you'll have issue of a topic/message comes from NNTP and then has forum-only replies. In which case if you delete the original you either have a loss of an entire topic or orphaned replies. Another words a big mess.

Can I reiterate this request?

I am using FUDforum to provide web access to a set of private newsgroups on a private NNTP server. We allow users of the NNTP server to cancel their own messages.

I'm not talking about expiry here - I'm talking about manual cancellation of messages, initiated by the NNTP user. When this happens, FUDforum does not honour the cancel, and the message remains on the Forum.

The functionality is available, but commented out because it's not properly tested yet. Search for "Handle NNTP cancellation messages" in scripts/nntp.php

The code is commented out because it is not properly tested. If someone can comment it out and confirm that it's working, we will permanently enable this feature.
