You can ask forum administrator to do it.

You can delete all posts from the user only deleting the user himself, from administration panel, and checking the box saying "Also remove all user MESSAGES and TOPICS (with other users' messages)".

I guess it will be a good idea to implement deleting only user's posts but leaving user registered. Is it too hard?

I'm trying to find a use for it - usually when you delete all user's posts it means the user is posting garbage and by not deleting him/her you only ask for more work in the future when he/she posts garbage again ;).

It seems to me your English must be very (since you use slang/colloquial English already ;).

Then if you can understand me, how be able to delete all the post from user, without being administrator, and without the need to delete the record of the user.

If I am simply moderator, I have that button to delete all post user.

wwould be the code for that? :P

A moderator cannot delete all user's messages at once; but the administrator can. It seems deleting all user posts isn't a very frequent operation so in such cases the administrator should be involved I think.

But maybe it's possible to do a hack (Paul may let you know)..

There is no way and I would implement this only on a custom (paid) basis.

I think there should be no such "freedom" for moderator by default and in all such serious cases moderator should contact administrator to complete this task.
