Deleting visitor messages


Hi. I'm trying to clean the list of visitor messages in my profile, but I see it is not possible, since the only option I have is "soft delete - Leave deleted messages". Why can't we "hard" delete old or unwanted messages? Thanks.

A "soft" delete completely removes a message from view. It simply leaves a pointer in the DB.

Well, it just changes the text of the message with the sentence "This message has been deleted by colucix.", but it does not clean up the visitor messages box. No problem, anyway.

I've cleaned them up for you.
