Delete All topics in a forum

Post by alhitary » Sun May 20, 2018 1:02 am

Dears,

To delete topics in a forum, I have to go to MCP and mark all topics in one page and delete them, then mark all topics in 2nd page and delete..etc
Is there any other way to delete all topics in a forum by one click ? like the option : delete all

Thanks

I just delete the whole forum via acp, and create a new one.

increase the number of topics that show on a page to some higher number and then do the page at a time bit.

Similar to how Froddelaar said, but without deleting the forum.

In the ACP --> hit the green cog on the forum you want to delete all the topics from --> hit "forum type" --> select "category" --> then the option comes up to move or delete all posts --> submit.

Then change forum type back to a forum.

That good, though they should make an option for delete all instead of change the forum type twice
Thanks
