Hi,

Thank you for contacting us and I'd be happy to assist.

I tested both the plugins that you mentioned and they worked as expected to delete all posts from a specific custom post type (that was added through Toolset Types).

Can you please share more details about the steps that you took and if you saw any error or warning?

Note: These plugins can delete the posts in a specific custom post type, but they won't delete that custom post type, itself. To delete a custom post type (after deleting all its posts), you can go to WP Admin -> Toolset -> Post Types, and from there, you'll be able to delete it.

I hope this helps and please let me know if you need any further assistance around this.

regards,
Waqar
