Show a list of soft deleted posts and threads and provides option to view or delete them.

When a user deletes a post or thread, that's called a soft delete. Soft deletes allow the administrator to review deleted content to determine if it needs to be restored or physically deleted.

This add-on was created to quickly display soft deleted posts and threads and to allow the Admin to quickly physically delete them.
