Deleting Users

This documentation applies to ZetaBoards only.

To delete a user, click on Remove Members under the Users and Groups section of the Admin CP. A form with options to select members for deletion is then presented.

Deleting Individual Users

To delete an individual user, enter the name of the member into the Member Name box at the top of the form. After clicking Delete Member a drop-down menu will then appear, from which the correct member must be selected from a list of members with similar usernames. Clicking Delete Member once more will then erase the chosen member's account, as well as any associated information.

Deleting Multiple Users

In order to delete multiple members simultaneously, the Delete members with: section should be completed. If you wish to delete multiple users, fill in at least one of the fields in the form, otherwise leave it blank. This section of the form will only delete the users that meet all of the entered criteria. The options in the section are as follows:

  • No posts since. By moving the slider left or right, all members who have not posted within the chosen number of days will be returned.
  • No visits since. By moving the slider left or right, all members who have not logged in to the board within the chosen number of days will be returned.
  • Registered more than: By moving the slider left or right, all members who registered outwith the chosen number of days will be returned.
  • Post count less than. By entering a numerical value into this field, all users who have a post count lower than the entered value will be deleted.
  • In group. By selecting a group from the drop-down list, all members in the selected group will be returned.

After clicking Delete Members, you will be presented with a confirmation list of all the members that are about to be deleted. By clicking Delete Members again at the bottom of the list, all listed member accounts will be permanently deleted.

After this, there will be no further confirmation. Do not continue unless you are absolutely sure that you wish to delete all of the listed user accounts.
