XF 1.1 Easiest way to empty a forum?


Well-known member
We're getting ready to expose our test site to some real users but before doing so I wanted to empty a couple of the forums that include old posts we imported to test with.

Is there a way in the ACP to delete all threads on a forum?

You could try increasing the number of threads per page.

You may run in to problems trying to delete too many threads at once though.

I realised a simpler way would be to delete the node and then remake it. When I delete a node I assume all it's content gets deleted? Or is it orphaned and needs cleaning up?
