Really and Truly Delete the News Item
To delete a News Item permanently, first navigate to the News Item that you want to delete. Example: www.yourwebsite.com/news, from there search for the news you wish to delete.
Next, you can either delete the news by selecting 'News' from the admin navigation menu or by selecting 'Options' at the bottom of the news. Each News Item has a footer menu with "edit" and "options" links and you can click on "options" to display additional options, including "Delete".
Click on "Delete News" or "Delete" link and you'll be directed to a confirmation page, where you'll be asked to confirm that you want to delete the News Item.
If you are sure you want to delete the News Item, click the "Confirm Delete" button and the News Item will be deleted.
That's all there is to it!
