multiple message delete?

Post by frontier gander on May 19th 2011, 5:15 am

Ok guys heres a simple question!

The other day i had to go and delete and argument on my forum, a good 30+ posts. I run off of satellite internet and so this took for forever to do. Is there a way to delete multiple posts or is it just one at a time?

You can delete more than 1 at a time.

well heres the deal, when i go to moderate the forum " i am the site admin" i get the option to split the selected posts or split from the selected post.

I dont want to delete the topic, just the trouble making posts from multiple users.

thats the problem LOL. i go into the area where the posts were, hit the moderate now button and i see where you can check the box for the messages to select, but theres no delete button, just the split topic and the split from topic button. I hardly ever have to delete multiple messages and there was always the delete button, its not there now.

Hi,

When you hit the "moderate this forum" button, to delete multiple messages in a thread, just click on the threads name, then you ca select which posts to delete. Smile

exactly what ive been doing. No delete button anywhere.

i checked the images and they are all there so thats ok. Nothing shows up on the moderate area.

its ok guys, i do appreciate all the help and possibles that it could be, but it just looks like its one of those deals that i will have to live with. Thanks again for all your help.

You click on moderate this forum>then click on the thread >
Now make a title for a new thread and select the forum it will be split to.

then go down and select the post you want by adding the check in the box.
Now go down and select (split from selected post).

Once you do that then you can go and delete the whole thread of where the post thread are now split to..

Just to be sure you are doing it right and know how to do it, start a test thread and make 4 fast post, follow the directions above and select two post.. this way you are sure you know how to do it right.. but thats it Smile

Just a suggestion, What i always do is have a forum named, trash, garbage, shit can or what ever you want to call it? And have the permissions set for staff or admins only.
So instead of deleting the messages you can just send them there then this way you always have a record of everything.If you delete them then they are gone, But if you keep them out of view of your members then they can be useful if you ever need to look up something that may have been posted from any given member that you had to moderate/remove from the board.

So yeah i never delete anything on my forums, i move them to a board like that for my records.

But just a suggestions, it's up to you if you wanted to do that or not Smile
