The spam on my forum is out of control, Is there a way to delete the user and all thier posts in one go?

The Starfoxtj Admin Toolkit will mass delete but it replaces their posts with the word "deleted" and changes their username to "Guest"

There is an anti spam topic as a sticky at the top of the phpBB2 support forum. You need to install something like the RAC mod to stop more getting in.

another simple idea that i would like to see is, when I click on "moderate this forum" instead of having to individually having to click on each tick box for each post to delete, can we have a "select all" option to add ticks in all the boxes. I literally have 5 pages plus in of spam to delete in each forum section.

You should not have let it get to that state. When it first started a visit here and the installation of a simple mod (5 minutes) was all that was needed to stop them.
I have installed the RAC mod on 9 sites and none have had a bot in near 2 years.


There will be no changes made to phpBB2 functionality as it is being phased out. Support for it stops at the end of the year as we are now on phpBB3
