Not really. You could query the database but there are several tables involved. It would be difficult to avoid having orphaned records.Is there any easy work around that would allow me to carry this out
Eww don't do that.so would my option be to export to IPB or vB, delete the offending forum, and then re-import??? Thats mad! (would that work, and what would i loose?!)
We're talking a large number of posts here, (it's actually well in excess of 1M posts), and it's currently stopping me from downsizing my server - my DB is currently over 1gig, so i want to reduce the size asap..!!Eww don't do that.
This thread is listed as a future fix. If you aren't hurting for space then just delete or hide the forum and wait for the devs to fix the issue.
I would point out deleting the node is not the answer, you'll end up with orphaned posts with no way to remove them until the devs write a function to find and remove orphaned threads & posts. It would be far easier for them to fix the bug in the first place so we don't get orphaned posts & threads!If you aren't hurting for space then just delete or hide the forum and wait for the devs to fix the issue.
