Delete User

Post by MichiganMotoX » Fri Mar 13, 2009 2:05 pm

I'm having trouble deleting Spam users with spaces in there user name. i.e. "Buy Sertraline Online 51"

In the User Admin control panel section "Select a User" I paste in the user name and it says "Sorry, but that user does not exist" I can search for that user using a wild card like "Buy * " and it will find the user but it still says it
doesn't exist when I try to delete the user!!!

Any suggestions?

Thanks

We are unable to provide answers to any support questions regarding these forums, other than to assist you in converting to phpBB3. You may however search here in the archived forums for similar questions, or turn to Google for unofficial sites still offering support.

If you posted here in error and need support for a 3.0.x board, or you would like to convert your 2.0.x board to the current release, please let us know and we will move your topic to the appropriate location.

I still haven't found a way to delete spammers with spaces in their name ( i.e. Buy Cheap Zoloft 579 )

Any help here?

Thanks

Maybe Admin Userlist can help you out. It's very easy to install and gives a lot of tools for administering users. It won´t delete their posts though.
For phpBB2 support visit phpBB2refugees.
