I recently got a bad bot on site that spammed my forum to hell. When I deleted the user, it didn't delete their forum posts and converted the username to Anonymous. What's the best / most efficient way to delete all posts by that user? They still have a username identifying number specific to the forum plug in, but when I increased the Screen Options posts size to max (999) and tried to delete those posts en masse, it gave a 400 error on header or cookie too large.

What's the best way to handle this?

Hi @beardmigo,

Go to The user Profile Page(in wpForo), press on "Dashboard Action", select "Delete in Dashboard", check "delete all wpForo Content" and press Confirm Deletion, by this way the user and all its data will be removed.

You can delete the post by bulk in Dashboard > Forums > Moderation > Published, Use the User Filter to find that user Topics and Post and delete them.
