Hi all, Im new to Kunena so Im not sure if configuration is right. I got some spam threads and now I can't find a way to delete them from the forum. I was able to delete the users but now I can't find a way to delete they're threads.

I did a search on this forum but did not see any results.

Can someone point in the right direction to delete these ?

Ok

Delete spamuser is not good. Better you ban the user. Click on avatar and then new ban. So you can delete easy all posts.



Another way, if you want delete complete topics: www.kunena.org/forum/kunena-4-0-feature-...ier-to-access#163602
But be careful! Permanently deleted topics cannot be restored. Is better if you choose only the option "Delete selected".

Rich has given you the basic answer to your question but there are a couple of other things I wanted to mention.

1) I produced a video tutorial about banning users over one year ago:



Video link: vimeo.com/83953421

2) The reason you may not have found the information you were looking for is because the search period defaults to "a year ago". If you change the search period to "any date" you may have found what you were looking for.

3) There is a subtle difference between the word "thread"—the word that you have used—and the word topic. I realise that this may be a sound a trifle pernickety, but it is preferable to use the word topic.

Hello, what if spam message is added into existing topic?
Is the whole topic removed when we apply a new ban?
Kind regards
Piter
