How to delete spam

Postby fsmithred » Thu Dec 06, 2012 4:12 pm

This one is for me, so I don't have to spend an hour trying to figure out how to delete a post. I'm used to different forum software.

Edit the post, and there's a checkbox at the top to delete the post. No need to go into the admin panel, although I believe I once found a way to do it there.

Today, I can't edit the post. There's no edit button. Instead, go to ACP, Manage Users, select the user, and the bottom is a button with drop-down menu, and one of the choices is "Delete all posts."

That sucks. Searching the knowledge database doesn't help, either. It just tells me that unless I'm an administrator, I can only delete my own posts. Thanks.

I sure got no idea what the problem might be.

Why i post:
I saw them and thought: "oh, ah, uh, ****".
Now am happy that they are removed (more or less easily, at least very fast :-) )

From what i see freeforums doesn't suffer from that much of spam.
I wish i would know why.
So i herd u liek mudkip?
