Hey all!

Just went live today on XF (escapee from VB after nearly 20 years). Is there a way to empty the "Approval Queue" without deleting posts? As you can see, I have over 17,000 posts from over the years that moderators have "unapproved". We don't want to delete these, though.

Also, is there a way to make the default, descending instead of ascending?

They will need to be actioned to remove them from the queue.

That means either approving or (soft) deleting them.

Why don't you want to delete them?

To be clear, I don't want to do delete these one-by-one. Is there a quick fix to soft delete over 17,000 posts in the Approval Queue?

Thanks!

There's nothing built in.

It should be possible with a bit of JS via the browser, or you can try this template edit resource, although I'm not familiar with it.

Thanks Brogan! That only does 50 at a time. Is there a setting where I can increase the number that is displayed on the Approval Queue?

Another thing I did was batch delete threads from Admin. On VB, I was able to batch move posts. On XF, I can only batch threads?
