To Purge a larger number of records, increase the cleanser max records from 100 to a larger number
@peregrine said: you may be timing out. You could try the cleanser plugin.
you can use filezilla or some such program and retrieve the text file with the list in it, edit on your local computer and re-upload it.
Thanks, I think I have it figured out then. Is there any way to purge more than 100 at a time? I have 5,200 unwanted applicants that are all bots (i've already approved all human entries), so that means running this program 52 more times. I guess I'll have to.
you could change in default.php
at around line 51 where it says
$IPAddSet = Gdn::Config("Plugins.Cleanser.IPAddress");
add the line
$CleanserMaxRecords = 200;
$CleanserMaxRecords = 500;
I haven't tested with high numbers of records and no one has provided feedback so I would try it around 500, if it works go to 1000, If 500 doesn't work go to 250. Probably depends on the memory on your server.
I thought I put that info in the readme.
I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
