To delete an activity entry, send an HTTP DELETE method to the edit web address specified for the node.
Deleted activity entries are moved to the trash collection and can be restored. See Restoring activity entries
for more details.
The types of activity nodes that you use to create entries has changed from 1.0.x. For example, in 1.0.x, to create an entry that included a bookmark or file, you posted an entry node of type bookmark or of type file. In 2.0, to create an entry that includes a bookmark or file, post an entry node of type entry and include a field of the appropriate type, link or file respectively, in that entry. For information about the entry types that were supported in 1.0.x, go to the following external web site:
