Duplicate Forum delete / no thread ?


Well-known member
Hi, I deleted all my forums on a copy of my site and it is as if the messages were still in the database, when I empty the cache that explores all:

All forum deleted

Hi Zephyr, where do you see your messages exactly? If you are using XenPorta for your site home, go check each block's options to see wether data is cached.

AdminCP > Blocs (in the left menu) > Click on each block

If cache is enabled, then this is normal behaviour : just uncheck the corresponding option.

Yes, Xenforo currently lacks the deletion of threads if you delete a forum. This is one of many missing mass administration features. You have to delete ALL threads in that forum manually before you delete the forum itself.

And in case you ask: No, there is no feature to find orphaned threads to be able to delete them.
