What is this hidden post feature for?

Was just browsing a topic right now. Has a few posts, and some posts are hidden.

The button says “View 15 hidden posts”. I can still actually see them though when I click so that’s good.

What is it for and should I worry about it.

I think it’s maybe for post that are not contributing to the OP. Not sure though!

That’s what happens when you press “Summarize” under the main post. It only displays the most liked ones.


OH OH that’s what I pressed. I used that button yesterday, however it didn’t do that.

Additionally, this feature(outside of summarise mode) is also for forum moderators and admins when a post in a thread gets deleted. They will be able to see all of the posts in a thread after deletion for safety and moderation purposes.

when posts are deleted, they don’t actually get deleted permanently
