Delete course fails to delete forum discussions

      Description

      When deleting a course, forum_delete_instance calls forum_delete_discussion, which in turn calls forum_delete_post with default second parameter $children=false. This causes forum_delete_post to fail if the post has replies. Consequently this leaves orphaned posts in the database.

        Good catch!

        Anyway, I think this change isn't correct:

        • if (($ownpost and $age < $CFG->maxeditingtime) or $isteacher) {

        + if ($ownpost or $isteacher) {

        because it will allow students to delete their posts always, isn't it?

        Perhaps a new $checkage parameter could be used to specify if we want to take care of $age or no.

        Ciao

        Assigning to me temporarily because Vy-Shane no longer works for Moodle HQ.
