I have a forum but, unlike most forum, posts are deleted periodically.
I’d like the administrator to optionally choose whether or not he wants
deleted posts archived (removed from the database but stored on the
fileserver) so that he or she can do whatever with the posts.
When a post is deleted, I’d like it to be saved as static HTML and have
the appearance of however it would have been rendered at the given
moment of its deletion. But I have no clue how to do this without
hurting my fragile brain. Any ideas?
