A question about ‘inactive’ members.

  • What determines if a user is ‘inactive’? And what does it mean?

    And, more importantly, how can i change the settings?

    I *believe* someone becomes inactive only if you mark them inactive. You can change the user status by going to their profile page, then clicking the edit tab, as keymaster.

    I’ve never seen it happen automatically. And, on the edit tab of the profile page, there is a description on the bottom of what blocked and inactive mean.

    Inactive users can login and look around but not do anything.
    Blocked users just see a simple error message when they visit
    the site.

    Note: Blocking a user does not block any IP addresses.

    Odd. About 3/4 of my members are marked inactive. All of them have a record in wp_user_meta with the data:

    bb_capabilities a:1:{s:6:”member”;b:1;}

    So… Yea. I don’t understand quite what’s going on here.

    I changed one user (already marked in DB as a member) to ‘moderator’, saved, then back to ‘member’, saved… and everyone that was showing as inactive started showing as ‘member’. I have no idea what was going on and i’m going to pretend it didn’t happen.
