Is anyone else running RTFM?
If so, have you ever tried to delete an article?
When I try it, it says it works but it doesn’t actually do it. That is, when I go back to the list of articles, it’s still there. And I see no code (not that I’m a Perl expert) that would actually do a delete from the database.
If I knew that someone else had tried it and it worked, I’d dig into it again.
