    It is not the general policy to edit or delete forum posts. When a post is made and people contribute answers to an issue, that then becomes part of the community resource for others to benefit from. Deleting posts removes this added value. In extreme circumstances, the moderation team might be persuaded to remove sensitive information but. generally, your best course of action is not to publish anything that you wouldn’t want to be public.

    I’m sorry but this is not an extreme case.

    Hi!

    I have the same problem and I understand that I have missed to read the codex about posting on this forum. But I posted an issue about a site that I am not the owner of, so I would really like to have the post removed. Because now it turns up on Google as a hit when you google this site.

    I do think this is a extreme circumstance since it is not my site, and I am not responsible of it, I just helped the owner with the wordpress design.

    How should I do? Should I post the link to the post?

    Many thanks!
