Assuming you are an admin, go to the post, click on moderate, and delete.

@nitely, thank you for your reply. Is it possible to also remove the image files and attachments from the server when a post is deleted?

@nitely, the post still shows up on the admin panel, but i found a work around it for now. I added "Topic" models into the django admin area, and from there i am permanently able to remove it.

I really like this forum, great work. =]. It's just that I'm not so skilled at coding.

Thank you

Nop, it's not possible. To be clear there is no way to permanently delete a category, a topic, or a comment. All deletions can be reverted. So, images/files are not deleted. This is by design.
