Deleting bogus users

  • Is there a way to delete bogus users?

    Maybe users with no posts or users or users marked as Bozo?

    Just go to your admin panel, Users > Edit > then “Delete User” – then you will get a confirmation and then the user will be gone.

    Thanks for the reply. I guess what I really meant was mass deleting bogus users. Deleting them one by one is a pain, when you get several a day.

    I also had the idea that it might be possible to change the registration system to keep bots from registering.

    There has been some talk of looking into the registration process.

    Also, how about the enhanced registration plugin?

    And a while back, someone commented that it took only a few minutes to delete the bad registrations every day. Can’t find a link to that post right now…

    In the meantime, if you head over to the “extend” tab and search for “memberlist”, you will find a plugin by Ardentfrost that creates a member list of all users. While you can not link to it publically, it is a great resource for admin to mass delete users from a list. You can edit the plugin to show as many on a page as you want!
