    I've never been able to delete a post from the iPad app.

    In Safari it's tricky. After you choose the Edit then Delete buttons another box of controls appears just below. Before you click this second Delete Post button you need to check the Delete Message radio button under Delete this post in the following manner:

    Hold in mind that some of the forum areas do not allow you to edit or delete your posts. The News section is one of these.

    So I'm not the only one who can't delete posts from the app.

    My screenshots show what you're describing.
    There's the possibility to delete posts in this forum. I've done it a few times.

    Did you change some of your iPF settings? In Safari or website view, next to your user name, tap "Settings", then scroll down to "General Settings" and look at them.

    Yep. I get the delete option, but the post never actually goes away.
