    I installed xenforo for a client a few months ago, but they never got around to launching their forum yet.

    Today I had a look at it and it has been slammed by spam. Now I have read the tips to reduce spam but what i want to know is there any way to mass delete users/posts?

    Or is the only way to do it delete the database and do a reinstall?

    If they're all just spam users/posts, you could just truncate the users and posts/threads tables surely?

    I ended up manually deleting the user and post rows from the database. I also added the site to www.cloudflare.com to help reduce the bots.

    The developers really need to improve their management tools.

    Thanks for the help.
