I need help deleting multiple notifications in one shot

Post by Hanibal » Sat Sep 24, 2016 10:39 am

My board has been hacked and I received a bunch of notification requests for registration.

They're obviously bogus, spambot type registration attempts. Is there a way to delete all of them at once and empty my notification folder?

So far I've been deleting them one at a time but that is tedious as hell and time consuming.

Thanks

PS - While I'm asking, is there a way to delete multiple posts as well?

Just to be clear, it sounds like you've had a spambot attack, not a hack.

See How to clean up a board hit by spam for some suggestions. When the accounts are deleted it should remove the notification too.
