delete user + all posts

Post by xtconline »

Is there a simple way to delete a user and all their posts? I have some spammers that have taken over and can't delete post by post.

Thanks to anyone that can help. I tried using the search on the board an it didn't work. :?

The search is not broken. Due to high server load, if you use a stopword in your query, you will get a blank page. This is explained in the "ReadMe Before Posting" sticky at the top of this forum.

There is no way to do what you want in the standard phpBB, although there may be a MOD that will delete a user and all his/her posts.
Have comments/praise/complaints/suggestions? Please feel free to PM me.
