how can i permanently delete all soft deleted threads or posts in one go?

i mean all threads and posts that i soft deleted till date will be deleted permanently
anyone knows how to do this?
didn't wanted to bump this but have to do this.
As far as I know, there is no way to do this from the forum; I think you will have to do it in the database, and be very careful as you can really break things if you do it wrong.
thanks leefish
I am surprised that such a tool does not exist in the admin panel. I think it is necessary to have a tool that allows the admin to permanently delete soft deleted posts in a date range or are older than a certain age.
You could always try posting it in the 1.8 Suggestions & Feedback forum.
