My students and I had happily created a fairly large Wiki and much
enjoyed the process. Over the summer, while I was away, some
unfortunate found their way to the site and added page after page of
URL's almost completely ruining the site. It was a sad discovery. I am
hoping that there might be help out there.
How can I delete pages? I see a lot of instructions on how to add pages
but is there a simple way to delete a page. That would enable me to clean
up the site.
Since each of the spammed pages just consists of dozens of URL's, is
there some way of mechanically sorting through the pages in the site and
automatically deleting any that have more that 5 links on them?
Should I tackle the recovery some other way?
Any help would be very, very much appreciated. Incidentally, now that the
spammer is in I am getting 10 new pages every day so this is quite urgent
