  • Delete private message spam to all users

    Hi,

    I had someone successfully register on my site who sent a private message to all members of the site. I've taken care of the user but would now like to delete all the PM's she sent.

    Is there a way I can delete all the PM's she sent, and only those PM's that she sent?

    Thanks

    Did you delete the user or just ban them? If you just banned them, then you can delete all the PMs from that user in Users > Search for Users > enter username > then from the Quick User Links drop-down, select Delete All Users Private Messages.

    Please don't PM or VM me for support - I only help out in the threads.

      Head over to Admin CP and find the account's profile, and under "Quick User Links" there's an option to delete all PM sent by that person.

          I just did "Delete private messages sent by user" for a user, but I still see them in the pmtext table, is that normal?

            Yes that is normal. A cron will delete those orphaned pmtext in an hour or two.
