In progress A member spammed my forum and I need a quick way to delete the posts.

Post by undead_x on May 10th 2014, 8:21 pm

Ok, so a couple of days ago.. a user on my forum came online and spammed my forum with over 200 meaningless posts and threads for "revenge".. I've deleted some of them, but deleting every single post from them will take forever. I tried resyncing the user to see what that would do (it did nothing whatsoever -.-) so, is there any other way I could delete them all without having to delete them one by one? Please answer.

You could create a new category an move all the good stuff unto the category then the spammed category delete it and do it with the rest of the spammed category's!

Hope this helps.

Hello,

Please change the title of your topic to something that is related to your question/issue, so that other users will be able to find their question/issue using the search engine.

There is a tutorial that explains how to add a function which will delete every single post made by a user, but it is French. You can use a translator to help: http://forum.forumactif.com/t348385-supprimer-les-messages-d-un-membre

I tried using the method on that link, but it did nothing.

Did you change the number in the code to match your forum version?

Do you have other JavaScripts? If you do try this, remove the others and see if it works.

I've took a look at your forum and it's only got one category. Also have tried my method?

Actually, its has a lot of categories, I just have it set to where guests can only see the Rules category because of spying from other forums.

So after you typed the username on that page, his/hers messages were still there?
