How to use:
- Because this add-on uses a large amount of resources, if deleting a large number of posts I suggest you close the forum.
- Enter "deleteposts" after the root portion of your forum URL:
Full Friendly URLs
non-Full Friendly URLs
- Enter Username and Limit number then click Search. The "Limit" field is required and is used to prevent the server from reporting an error if too many posts are deleted at one time. Typically the Limit maximum needs to be between 200 to 5,000 depending on your server.
- Once the Delete Posts Confirm page is verified and you're sure you want to delete the users posts, click the Delete Posts link.
