Hi,
Can we delete all posts by "Guests" (deleted users) in one hit?
Forum has been in active for yrs as life got too busy, Wouldn't mind trying to get it up and running again but all post by Guests doesn't look good Smile

what you could do is do a backup of all your members if you have not long deleted the accounts and then you can use this system.

Their accounts were deleted yrs ago i think as i was closing the forum down but then decided to leave it as there were things i wanted to keep.
So i guess that wont work above?

You do know that you can use the moderate link which loads a new page that you can check the boxes then click delete.
