  • Delete User Threads/Account Error

    From a subforum I select a post and go to Delete Topics, delete all from that user, ban that user and get the attached error. I've tried a few different users and none of them are working. I just upgraded from 5.05 to 5.23 if that matters.

    There is a chance that I have bigger problems than just this issue. I've been trying to rebuild the forums and the attached screenshot has been appearing and disappearing for about 10 minutes. I haven't touched it, but it's probably shown up at least 50 times, same exact info, "0 to 99 of 305349".

    Is there something bigger that needs to happen first? Maintenance or something?

      If the user has more than 50 posts, you cannot delete all their posts using the Inline Moderation. You will need to attempt to do so in the AdminCP under their user profile using the Quick Links menu.

      The last image is not an error. It can take some time to run and will run multiple times as it says in the text on the screen. There is no real reason to run this task on a regular basis.

        Thanks Wayne Luke I was trying to run different maintenance things as after my upgrade, nothing is showing on the homepage (where new threads used to be). I assumed that I needed to do the maintenance items. I haven't logged into this forum in a long time so spam is overgrown.

        Is there a better way to delete all posts/threads by a user I need to delete? I don't want to just ban the user, I want to delete the account and everything associated with the account. I have at least a couple thousand of these accounts to delete so I'd prefer a bulk way if one exists.
