Solved: 6 Years, 8 Months, 1 Week ago Can't delete post of banned (and now deleted) spammer

Solved: 6 Years, 8 Months, 1 Week ago
I'm using the default theme. I've banned a spammer. I found a post of this spammer, but there is no delete option when I try to edit the message. When I select the message for inline moderation I get:

Sorry, but you did not select any posts to perform inline moderation on, or your previous moderation session has expired (Automatically after 1 hour of inactivity). Please select some posts and try again.

Tried to solve it by deleting the spammer completely, but no luck. The spammer is gone, but his messages not.

A similar problem was reported here: http://community.mybb.com/thread-160910.html

Thanks for any help.

If you remember their username you can delete the posts by running this query in PHPMyAdmin:
DELETE FROM mybb_posts WHERE username='username_here';

How did you ban the account? There is a Purge Spammer button in postbit/profile which removes everything, including threads/posts. You should use it next time if you don't want any problems.

As for inline moderation, it's unfortunately quite buggy in 1.8. I'd be grateful if you reported this issue here: http://community.mybb.com/forum-157.html with as many details as possible.

Thanks, I managed to the delete the message, using PHPMyAdmin. But there must beĀ  a bug somewhere...

I banned him from the member list. I've reported it as a possible bug. Thanks.
