Clearing form responses from database.

Hi there,

I need to clear out roughly 400 form responses stored in Perch.

I don't think there's a way to delete them all at once through the admin but is it safe to just remove the rows in the 'perch2_forms_responses' table using something like Sequel Pro?

You can't delete all at once, but you can delete a page at a time using the checkbox in the top left, and then "Deleted Selected" at the bottom.

The site is using Perch 2, is that functionality only in Perch 3 as I've never seen it? Is it veasible just to delete the rows in the table instead without breaking anything?

Right, that's only in Perch 3. You should be ok to delete those directly, but make a backup first.

Marvellous, thanks Drew. I've tried it locally and all seems fine.
