Not sure what was in the post but usual reasons are:
  • Duplicate
    Against forum rules
    Spam.
Not sure which was the cause here.

Thanks James, it might of been for a duplicate post. But the first post, that one is still live was regarding a query and the second post was posted after I'd resolved the issue and I'd posted my 'HowTo'.

I can confirm that the post was deleted as a duplicate, duplicates will always be deleted without warning, an assessment will be made which copy to delete, but yeah, the wrong choice in the OP's view can be made. :roll: If a post is marked as [solved], then that can affect the choice.
unless posts are actually locked they are always "live", in 99.9% the time that is the case for both copies.

I'm assuming it's not possible to get the post back and I'd have to repost the 'Howto'?
