Deleting ALL of a user's posts
Is there any way to delete all of auser's posts, even the threads that they started.

I have two members that plan on "leaving" my board, they would like all of their posts deleted when they leave. I started on it, but doing it individually post by post takes FOREVER.

Is there any way BBoard Admin can delete threads?

Hi dianimal :smile:

You can delete all of a users posts by ticking the boxes beside their usernames in your boards Edit Users screen and selecting 'Delete All Users Posts' from the 'Select Action' pull down menu at the bottom :smile: This will delete every post they have made, except for threads they have started, and is not reversable :smile:

Re: Deleting ALL of a user's posts
I've already done that. My question is... is there any way to delete all of the threads that they started.

The only way I know how is to do a search on their User Name and delete post by post or go page by page in the forum, clicking on the posts they have started. This takes waaayyyyyyy too long as their posts have been accumulating for a few years.

I'm wondering if Bboy or BbAdmin can do it in a faster way.

You can speed up the process(just a tiny bit) by clicking on the U, to sort by username.. then make a guess what page they are on alphabetically and tick away. Still slow, but...

Hi dianimal :smile:

I'm not positive, but i don't think its currently possible for an BbAdmin to delete all the threads started by a certain user, sorry :smile: The best way I can think of is by doing what supersunshine suggested :smile: You can delete multiple threads at once by ticking the boxes next to the threads you wish to delete in a forums thread index, and by selecting 'Delete Threads' from the 'Mod Options' pull down menu at the bottom :smile:
