We currently do not have a way to bulk delete any cards. Unfortunately, for now, the only alternative to going one-by-one to delete those cards would be to create a script to automate that action via the API, so if you have any developer resources available to you, that would be a great route to explore: https://developers.trello.com/

The reason why we currently do not offer a bulk feature from our end is to prevent any automatic process or option that would delete content permanently - which then at some point turns out was not meant to be deleted.

can they add this basic info somewhere so when you google 'delete archive trello' 

the relevant info / page would come up 

cos this basic info cant be found anywhere and im pretty sure i already asked this sometimes within the last 2 years or something

also i think maybe got a response like 'can't' or i dun remember

this basic info should be added somewhere accesible already to permanetnly fix this problem

@fucktest here is a Trellinator function that will delete all archived commands on a board when you add a card to the board called "Clear archived cards":

You can follow these instructions to install Trellinator:
