My forums have been badly spammed. How do I delete all threads and posts by a user?

If you want to delete a user then go to the Admin Control Panel > Users & Groups > Users > Find the user you are looking for > Options (on the right) > Delete User.

If you're running 1605 then I suggest using the ReCaptcha with the official API, I've noticed that this specific captcha helps a lot.

As for plugin, I recommend "Hot Words" (stops spams with specific keywords), "Registration Security Question" (stops 100% of automated spam bots if you use custom questions), & "Stop forum spam" helps.

Thanks for that.

I actually figured out how to do this after posting... using a MySQL query.

Solved.
