bulk deletion of messages not working

Post by tumblingdice »

If I try selecting multiple messages and then marking them as deleted, I get the following error message:

"The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again."

Any way that can be fixed?

I believe there’s a limit on how many, at once, you can delete. So you may have to do smaller batches.
Of course if you were only trying to delete 3 or 4 at a time then it’s highly likely I’m full of it. ;)

Hi Ron, thanks for chiming in. Even small batches of 3 or 4 won't delete. I won't say you're full of it, though.

I noticed that as well, it's a bug with private messages in the current forum version, so it may be fixed when I upgrade next. In the meantime, you can still delete messages individually if you click on each message (so view the message in full) and use the 'x' button along the top to delete it. No other way I know of (outside of raw DB access, which comes with its own set of problems) to do what you want right now.
