Is there a quick way?
You could do it with an SQL query, but otherwise no.
I wouldn't do it via an sql query, because this wouldn't rebuild the forum- & user post count and the search index
So you would still find the threads/posts via search, and then you'll get an error
if it's not possible in xf, you would need a add-on for this ( i'll check my add-on repository, i think i've coded this already)
True, but you can rebuild the caches.
I think I could just delete the forum node then create it again as another way.
and what's with the thread associated (add-on ) data? (I know, many don't use add-ons, so it could be ok for them, but for everybody else, i recommend to NEVER delete something manual !
you'll have too many unnecessary add-on data in the database^^
But without an add-on, there is no other option in some cases.
Usually if I reply and say no, the follow up question then asks whether it can be done directly on the database.
So now I just give both answers in the same post.
Ragtek do you have an addon for this please?
Couldn't you just select all threads and delete?
That would take a while if there are hundreds or thousands of threads.
No, haven't found it, but i'll code it for free, if you play the tester
