I am new to blogengine admittedly. I have tried to delete a post that re-posted 5 times. I have deleted it out of the blog/app_data/posts but it still appears on the blog. I have deleted all history items too. Please help. Thanks.

The post is most likely cached in memory still. Try adding a new post via the admin interface, and then delete the new post by clicking on the "delete" link at the bottom of the post.  That should update the cache.

tried that. post still there. (admin interface is the "sign in" section right?)

oh...I click on "delete" and get this error:

This error (HTTP 400 Bad Request) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the web server, but the webpage could not be found because of a problem with the address.

For more information about HTTP errors, see Help.

If you delete the post directly out of App_Data, then re-starting the blog will clear it out of memory.  You can restart the blog by making any change to the web.config file (add a space, etc).
