Recently had an influx of spam posts and topics, around 3k, I deleted the user along with their posts but the posts didn't delete and just say by anonymous now, when attempting to delete the whole board and start it again or when attempting to delete the posts I always get a 504 error, gateway Timeout, along with this the whole website takes ages to load now.

Hi @arob,

You can delete the needed posts from wpForo > Moderation admin page, 

Before deleting the user, make sure that you Select Delete all wpForo content option and then Confirm Deletion.
