Mod for spam thread removal

Post by Sam Spade »

I'm one of the admins for a forum,
It's been unused for a few weeks and a few dozen spambots ravaged the place.

there are 40+ pages of threads full of porn links,
Is there a mod that can remove them all or am I forced to sit down for hours and select each one in the Moderator CP and delete them?

EDIT:
The forum is still on 2.0.16,
I guess I'll have to update it,
but is there a mod that will work before the update?

You need the Admin Toolkit. The link is in my signature.

Thanks!

Will it work for the current version or will I have to update before that?

You should update and not just to get functionality out of the Admin Toolkit. All phpBB updates now are security patches and you are currently 6 behind. Update the forum first before you get hacked and then worry about the lesser problem of spammers.

Good luck :)
