Purge Old Visitor Messages 1.2

No permission to download

This product will delete all visitor messages that are older than the specified number of days. There is now the option to restrict the visitor messages to be purged to only those which contain a specified string of text. You could use this to only delete the auto-generated welcoming visitor messages produced by this product:

New/Returning Members Visitor Message


Version 1.1:

  • Now allows the entry of a string of text which must appear in visitor messages to be purged.

Version 1.2:

  • Only purges read visitor messages.


Tested and working on VB 4.2.x and should work on all 4.x versions of vBulletin.


This product does not alter your database, however it is always good practice to make regular backups and you should make a backup before installing ANY new mod.

As always, products are USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I will provide support and do my best to help but no absolute guarantee is offered.

To Install:

  1. Download and extract the attached .zip file.
  2. Follow AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product.
  3. Click on "Choose File" and browse to the product .xml file that was packaged in the .zip file.
  4. Click "Import."

You MUST set your settings to enable the mod. The setting for this add-on is found by following:

AdminCP -> Settings -> Options -> User Profile: Visitor Messaging Options

At the bottom of the page, you will find new settings labeled "Purge Visitor Message Threshold In Days" and "Required Text Within Visitor Messages For Purge":


The deletion is a daily cron job.
