[Resolved] How do I delete a forum within my bbpress?

  • ryan a


    Can’t seem to find this in the search here. I’d like to delete one of the forums within my main forum. Not a topic or a post, but an actual forum. I have 3 different forums listed in order:

    1) Nutrition
    2) Workout Stuff
    3) Welcome to the Forum

    I’d like to delete #3 altogether. How do I do that? My account is set to Keymaster for the forum, and I do not see a delete option anywhere on the forum.

    ok, given that I presume you want to get rid of all topics and replies in the forum, and then the forum itself.

    First take a backup – after you have permanently deleted, there is no way back !

    then delete the topics and replies for that forum (or they’ll still appear in searches)


    at the top click screen options, and select say 500 so that you can delete 500 topics at a time !

    The filter for the forum you want to delete and choose bulk delete.

    Repeat for replies


    Dashboard>forums and select your forum and edit

    under ‘publish’ on the right hand side you’ll see ‘move to trash’

    click this and move to trash

    you may then want to permanently delete the topics, replies and forum, maybe after backing up first !

    Perfect. Thank you!
