Excellent add-on, with my large forum, a really time-saver, no more manually checking al my threads/forums. Needed to adjust the limit in the options from 500 to 200 due to time-out errors, but is working without a hassle!
This is fantastic. AndyB helped me work through 20k of soft-deleted posts and 2500 soft-deleted threads accumulated over 15 years, including a number of old posts and threads that had become orphaned on vBul YEARS ago and entirely hidden after we moved to XF 5 years ago. Not only is the addon itself super helpful, his support for our unique conditions was great, and worth a lot more than he charges.
Works flawlessly as all of AndyB's addons do. Been using dozens of his modules and his support is the best across the board.
This is an incredibly useful addon. We have mods that like to tidy up all this stuff from way back that is basically just guff that should have been hard deleted in the first place
