Ok - We know at the moment that xF when deleting threads doesnt remove these from the DB. I believe this is being worked on for a later release, however Kier suggested the following :
Well, you could try this from an admin controller:
PHP: // deleted forums:$nodes = array(1, 2, 3); $threadModel = $this->getModelFromCache('XenForo_Model_Thread');$imodThreadModel = $this->getModelFromCache('XenForo_Model_InlineMod_Thread'); $threads = $threadModel->getThreads(array('node_id' => $nodes)); $threadIds = array_keys($threads); $imodThreadModel->deleteThreads($threadIds, array('deleteType' => 'hard'));
I think that will do the job...
I have plenty of power on the server ( i believe the issue is down to the amount of resources it takes to delete these on bulk), however i'm at a loss as to where/how i can run it??? Please remember i'm not a developer, so it would have to be easy to follow
I just desperately want to get the old posts removed from the db so i can move hosts
