Hello,

I just can't find the function to remove post of spammer in my ACP. There is a spammer posted more than 80,000 post in my forum and I faced timeout when trying to remove his posts.

Yes, I did. The problem is spammer posted too many topics (80,000) so that spam cleaner tool can't handle it's job.

I suggest using the Batch Update Threads function to reduce it to a more manageable amount.
Use the hard delete option at the bottom.

Then you should be able to run the spam cleaner.

This is the first time I know this function. It helps a lot. I can remove posts now.

Another option is to use the Delete Posts v1.5 add-on located here:

https://xenforo.com/community/resources/delete-posts.3102/

In the Options you can set the Limit which will limit the number of deletes at one time.
Thanks, I'll give it a try.
