Un-Delete discussion posts in d2l

This document will go over un-deleting posts in d2l discussions.

Sometimes teachers or students will delete discussion threads, and accidentally take an entire thread with it, oh nos!
Never fear, undelete is here.  You will need a TA account or higher to do this.
1. First we need to enable the option to see deleted messages.   Click Discussions, then the little settings wheel on the upper right.

2. From there, under Personal Settings, check the option to Display Deleted Messages.  Check it and hit save.

3. Now you can see deleted messages in the discussion area.  Deleted messages are in grey strike-through text.   To undelete the message, click on the message title.   This will bring it up in a new window, or below all the threads.  Browser / setting dependent.   In the new area of the message, just above the title is a more actions dropdown button, use that and select undelete.
