how do you delete a thread in this section?

 

Worried someone may copy my website. I thought you could edit your post

    Just edit the post and remove the website address.

     

    Why would anyone want to copy your website?

    You must login to the forum to see the Edit button.

     

    However, you cannot edit any of your posts that someone has replied to.

    @jinda55,

     

    Don't worry, I have reported said post as Abuse.

     

    Our ever vigilant moderators will pick this up and remove the link for you.

     

    For lesser matters, complete posts of mine have been smitten to eternity

    @jinda55,

     

    A few minutes ago, our friend in the form of a moderator, has been to check your post, but apparently did not see the sense in removing the link.

     

    I did my best.

    Gramps

    As an FYI, these forum posts are picked up by Google.  Once it's out there, it's in forever-land.

    In the future, create a test page. When your question is answered, remove the test page from your server.

    I'm completly confused   How do you expect that removing a post would prevent someone from copying your website? Your website is on the web, right?

    Again, why would anyone want to copy your website anyway?

     

    If you're that worried about it, password protect the link.

    In other words if someone copies my website I could fail as well :@

    I think you're being overly paranoid.  When your site is published on the web, the source code is available for everyone to see by viewing source in their browser.   Removing the URL from an old post won't change anything.  It's already out there.  Google has indexed your posts.

    >Part of the process is to upload

    >the website to a domain name

     

    OK. In the url that you posted here, create some real garbage content. Then create a new unpublished subfolder and put your real classwork content there.
