i have the same issue - i can't mark and remove multiple spammer posts.  this must be a bug and it's really annoying to have to manually remove a hundred spam posts one at a time. 

this does not work, no check boxes appear ...

Deleting Multiple Posts

In order to delete multiple posts at the same time, you first need to enable checkboxes for quick moderation. Go to Profile > Modify Profile > Look and Layout. To the right of Show quick-moderation as, you will see a drop-down box. Select the checkboxes option here.

Now, go to the posts to be deleted and check the box in the upper-right hand corner of each post that you wish to delete. Then scroll down to the bottom of the topic and click on the button Delete Selected.

This is a separate issue and likely you have a theme that doesn't support it.
Perhaps it would have been better if I'd simply never bothered. Y'all clearly would be less unhappy that way.

ack!  is there a workaround or a mod/hack that will allow me to delete over 200 spam posts??

current theme is the default curve.

Curve does support checkbox moderation, please check your settings first.

You shouldn't need one - but trying a different theme could count as a workaround.

what settings and where?  i already set the spammer's profile for checkbox moderation and shows no checkboxes, what am i doing wrong?

Illori

you need to set your profile not theirs. it is your account you are using to delete the posts right?

i changed my profile (admin) to show checkboxes - they don't show for me or the spammer.

Where are you looking for the checkboxes once you set it?

they will show on the message index or in the topic view. they dont show in the profile as far as i know.

RFD

nope, no checkboxes anywhere and i have hundreds in total to remove for three russian spammers.

there has to be a better way.  this (multiple post deletions for a specific user) is incredibly important in this day and age.

RFD

my profile (admin) has been set to show quick checkboxes.

the spammer has been banned.  i'm viewing his posts through his profile.

Illori

go to delete the account, there is an option to delete the posts/topics as well as delete the account.
