Hi, I've recived a massive spam atack and now I have hundred of messages that I don't know how to eliminate. I've tried deleting the author, it has worked for me before, but this time all the spam messages turned to "Anónimo" author and I cannot select it.

So I'm deleting them one by one but it's an hours work. Is there a way to do it massively?

This is my foro: https://www.deviolines.com/forum/el-violin/

 

Thanks!

Hi @chusman,

For deleting spam user and all his content, go to the Profile(wpForo) of that user, press on Dashboard Action button(right upper corner), select delete in dashboard option then select Delete all wpForo Content and press on Confirm Deletion.

@chris Thanks Chris, so I did but, because the huge number of messages, I think there was a error because the profile author disappeared, but not his messages, which changed to "anonymous", and this one doesn't exist as a profile and can't be deleted. So now I'm deleting messages at the moderation panel, one hundred each time.

I am deleting

@chris Yes, I know, but there is a limit beyond which an error occurs, so I'm doing it little by little with a hundred each time
