To remove an item while the story is live, click on the x in the lower left corner of the item in the Live Story Console.
To edit an item (it must be one that you posted a message on) click on the pencil icon.
To promote your Live Story, click on the bullhorn icon either on the Live Story header in the forum, or in your Console.
You'll be creating a Web Article promo, which will be distributed throughout Delphi.
If you want to give someone the link to your Live Story, or create an announcement, use the Permalink that's shown just above your Live Story title in the Console.
The format for LS links is: http://forums.delphiforums.com/webtag/stories/storytitle
Along with your Live Stories, there's a new widget that appears in your right column, at the very top, called Live Stream.
In Customization & Design, under Sidebar Widgets, there's a control for the Live Stream Display. Mark the box if you want the Live Stream widget to show in your sidebar.
This feature shows when discussions have been posted to, when someone has commented on a Live Story, as well as displaying when you've received new PM's. (Only you will see that notice of your PM's,) and who's entered or left your chat room.
Once a Live Story has run its course, you'll close the story in your Live Story Console.
Choose the file save icon.
When you close the story, comments are closed, and the entire story flips chronologically, so the oldest entry will be first, just like regular forum threads. The now-archived story will continue to be available in your Story folder, as long as you've selected that option in your Control Center.
A new thread is created to give you the opportunity to continue the conversation, with a link to the Story, which is now in an archived state. Click on the "View Article" link to see it.
If it's not a thread you're planning on continuing, send it to your Staff Folder, or simply delete it once it's posted.
My console doesn 't display any way to edit a story. I entered a test thinking I'd take it down rather quickly, but now I cannot. It remains visible even though I've also unchecked the option for live stories.
Click on the Story on your forum (not in controls) and look for the pencil icon in the upper right. That will pull it up in the editor and you can delete from there (at the bottom)
Does that work?

Thank you for the response. There's no pencil icon.
There's an icon for share, promote, a third that goes to the console.
Hey great forum and you have lots of social media connections! You should be using the live stories lol.
Did you post the test story from the forum? You should go through the Console in controls and enter your twitter account info. Then start your first Live Story that way. Add relevant hashtags to the incoming queue field.
Nice feedback thread here @Cstar1 for those that have worked hard on Zeta the past year and a whatever http://forums.delphiforums.com/scrappyquilts/messages?msg=2076.1
ok when you are in the console look on the right there are 5 icons. Click the settings one on the far right. Change Active to Disable and move it to your staff folder.
Does that work?
I connected it to Twitter to see if that might kick in the edit or delete options. It didn't so I removed the Twitter connection.
I went through the Console in controls to post the test. I've reset the Stories area to not be live but it's still visible (to me and to others). It seems like the post is simply missing the edit areas that should be there.
Perhaps the solution is to post another story in hopes that the first will go away.
We just started using the forum again after many years 'away' as an alternative for a forum that will be deleted in a week or so. People love the look.
