my forum recently suffered from this how can i fix this tried individual delete and posts and topics but lot of accounts with 2 or 3 posts

TheListener

Suffered from what exactly?

Is it spam posts you mean if so a search for an antispam mod will be required.

What is the link to your forum?


TheListener

From what I remember the only way these can be removed is via the cpanel or individually.

anti-spam link mod will stop the links, but will not stop the spam.

as for deleting the members...   you can group delete the members - however, this will not delete their posts.

So, either delete the members one, by one, and delete their posts with them
or
Delete the members in bulk
then go to the boards and delete the posts in bulk.

go to the memberlist in smf admin

you can sort by date, by posts, etc...   check the checkbox to the right for the members you want to remove and then select "remove" from the drop down at the bottom.

how to delete posts and topics in bulk

Kindred

you can't group them like that...

but, if you go to your profile, under look and layout
Show quick-moderation as  --- set this to checkboxes.

then you can select the threads in the messageindex pages and delete them
