Provides soft-deletion/trash bin functionality for Drupal. Content (node/comments/taxonomies/etc) is "soft-deleted" instead of deleted outright, and can be retained for a configurable span of time before being permanently purged. All this is opaque to end-users as all soft-deleted content is pervasively hidden from them, but administrators can access and restore soft-deleted content when necessary.

An index of recently soft-deleted content is also made available as an RSS feed at soft-deleted.rdf (this functionality requires the RDF module), allowing content deletions to be propagated from one Drupal instance to another that subscribes to its content (requires FeedAPI on the subscribing side in order to process the content deletions). This particular functionality is intended for use cases such as multi-instance scenarios based on the publish/subscribe architectural model.

Module is fully integrated with Rules, Views , Node UI.
The module also records the user whom soft-deleted the content and also deletion time.

This module requires PHP 5.2 or newer, and will integrate with the Views, FeedAPI, and RDF modules if installed.

This project is a fork of killfile module, and is currently being developed by Sina Salek .
Thanks to Kevin Day, Arto Bendiken, Dan Karran and Miglius Alaburda. and their sponsors OpenBand and MakaluMedia for developing the original module.
