How To Delete A Reddit Post? [in 2022]

In this Reddit tutorial, we are going to show you how to delete Reddit posts.

 Can you delete Reddit posts?

Yes, you can absolutely delete Reddit posts. But, deleting posts can be a bit different and it depends on how you are using Reddit.

You can delete a post if you are facing the following situations:

  • If your post on Reddit is getting massively downvoted by the foot soldiers of a particular community
  • If you have unintentionally violated any rule of the subreddit and hence you are not willing or avoiding getting permanently banned
  •  If you realize that you have posted a cringe content and you do not want your post to be there anymore

The reason for deleting a post from Reddit can be anything as nobody is perfect and similarly, your Reddit posts aren’t perfect either.

How to delete a Reddit post?

  1. If you are using the current version of Reddit (reddit.com) on the web browser on your computer or on your smartphone, you can follow these steps to delete a Reddit post:
    1. Log in to your Reddit account by clicking on the top right option ‘log in’
    2. You should tap on a downward arrow located beside your profile icon (that you may or may not have customized) located at the top right corner of the screen. This will give you a drop-down menu.
    3. Next, you should click on ‘profile’ and then select ‘posts’. This step will take you to the list containing all the posts you have created.
    4. You need to locate the post that you want to delete and search for an ellipse icon
    5. You will get an icon towards the bottom of your post. Click on the icon and then click on ‘delete’.
    6. A final pop-up will appear as a warning that if you delete the post then it cannot be undone. You need to finalize your decision by clicking on ‘delete post’.

If you are using the old version of Reddit (reddit.com) on the web browser on your computer, you can follow these steps to delete Reddit posts:

    1. You should select the username link present in the top right corner of the screen.
    2. Next, you should click on the tab named ‘submitted’. This step will take you to the list containing all the posts you have created.
    3. You will get an icon towards the bottom of your post. Click on the icon and then click on ‘delete’.
    4. A final pop-up will appear as a warning that if you delete the post then it cannot be undone. You need to finalize your decision by clicking on ‘delete post’.

Can you mass delete Reddit posts?

Unfortunately, you cannot mass delete posts as Reddit does not offer this option. Both the old and new versions and the redesign do not offer a feature of bulk delete. Thus, you have to manually delete them from scratch or use any external source.

You can follow the steps of deleting an individual post as already mentioned or you can use RES (Reddit Enhancement Suite). RES is an extension of a browser that will take you to a world full of possibilities that are not native to the site. Reddit Enhancement Suitewill offer you different multiple scripts that will let you manipulate the data of Reddit in bulk.

  • Install the Reddit Enhancement Suite
  • You have to load the posts or comments that you want on the page with the help of Reddit Enhancement Suite
  • Now, click Ctrl+ Shift+ J. this will give you access to the tool’s console of the developer
  • You need to paste a code in the console that is available on the Reddit Enhancement Suite.
  • Lastly, click ‘enter’ for running the script.
