Hey Jose,

Trough the UI that is not possible since once you hit delete all the database entries are removed sad.

The only three possible ways are, restoring a xmlbackup prior the deletion of the question (which would cause you to recover it however you would lost any data added after that point).

Or restore the xmlbackup into a staging environment and then recover the information from the database so you can manually add that (which would require some testing).

Ask the user to re add the question and and the other users to re add their replies.

Hope it helps.
Thanks and Regards,

Is it the same for answer? Can I restore a deleted answer?
