I recently had a mod move a topic and leave a shadow topic in it’s place.  The intent was to move the topic to our area for deleted topics, but the shadow caused it to remain visible.

I wanted to delete the shadow topic without deleting the original topic.  A little bit of digging around helped me find the answer…

The Moderator Control Panel

I honestly had no idea that the MCP even existed, much less what I would need it for, but this case is a perfect example.

To delete a shadow topic, navigate to the forum containing the shadow topic, and use the Moderator Control Panel to select and delete the topic.

That’s it!  Easy enough to do, it’s just a matter of knowing to use the MCP to get it done.
