You can change this in the ACP.
Our moderators can delete posts. But every now and then we get spam attacks so we need to be able to delete in bulk.
Also as an admin do I purge these deleted posts from the backend side?
Thanks @baris , did it come with 1.2 ? as we're still in testing mode and migrating data we're using a lower version currently. Also how do I purge the data from the database?
I think it is available since 1.0, if you purge posts after deleting they are removed from the database.
@baris Thanks a mil for these insights! I saw "Delete Posts"inside a topic but is it possible to bulk delete topics as well? Spammers often creates hundred times same topic.
@greenmoon yes you can. Select multiple topics and then use the "Delete Topic" under "Topic Tools"
