Below is a script that you can "delete" posts without an admin panel, you use the URL and $_GET[''] instead. The idea is to make removing posts as easy as possible from any computer without bothering with the admin panel.

  • No admin panel required.
  • All "deleted" posts remain in the database and can be restored by simply changing post status back to the default value of 1.
  • All individual posts have an anchor link. Good for the user who may want to email a link to the post and bookmarking.

How it works:
  • You notice a problem post to remove, in this example post 0003.
  • Click the posts anchor link to display the post id in the URL. index.php?post=0003#0003
  • Replace the #0003 with your delete password. index.php?post=0003password
  • Reload the page.
  • If your delete password is a correct match then the row status is changed to 0.
  • Only posts with a status of 1 will display.

PHP Code:
if (isset($_GET['post'])){
$post $_GET['post'];
$passWord substr($post, -8); // last 8 characters.
if ($passWord == "password") {
$postId substr($post,0,4); // first 4 characters.
mysql_query("UPDATE posts SET status=0 WHERE id=$postId");

$sql mysql_query("SELECT * FROM posts WHERE status = '1'");
$row mysql_fetch_array($sql)){
"<a name=\"$row[0]\"></a>\n";
"<a href=\"index.php?post=$row[0]#$row[0]\">$row[0]</a><br>\n";
