This module will delete any nodes of a certain node-type using the batch api. It is advised to use the Views Batch Operations module (VBO) for a small number of nodes. But if you have to delete 10.000 nodes this module might be a better option.

For a drush command there is Delete All

Warning: This module will permanently delete your nodes! We mean it!

Use it as your own risk and make sure you have a backup!

administer nodes permission is needed
The user that wants to bulk delete nodes must have the "administer nodes" permission.

We use cores node_delete_multiple() to remove the nodes. This is reliable but slow. My computer can delete 200 nodes per second using this method. Be aware that this will add a watchdog entry per node deleted!

This module was created by Robert Douglass and Kars-T
