Sorry to hear that, it sounds like you will need to restore your forum from backup
Is there a way to delete all topics in a category without it deleting the actual category?
Ive been testing on my forum for a while and want to remove all of my "Testing Post" topics.. but dont want to have to re=setup the category.
When in category view, you can click the left-hand side avatar to expose a checkbox. Once one topic is checked, you can hold the shift key and click the last topic in the page to select everything in between as well.
Delete at will.
Thanks i didnt know the checkbox exsited :) but..
What i meant was is there a way to purge them so they don't show up in the category at all (when i delete they show as deleted). My test topics weren't "professional" so to speak so i don't want people to see them.
I guess i am basically wanting to purge a category without deleting the actual category
Woops.. Just noticed the purge topic button that appears after deleting.. Moving on..
