Do the users, who was deleted have an opportunity to register again later?
Just study phpBB.

Off course, a user name and / or email, not in the db can register again once they are deleted.

Does this delete users, who are not activated by admin or by by user (e-mail verification), or does this delete users, who didn't visit forum for certain time, but they are activated? I'm asking, because I would like to have the first one but not the second.

Shouldn't you use phpBB's own functions for user pruning?
Those seem to be in file, includes/acp/acp_prune.php

I used that at first but thinking the inactive new users can't have messages etc it's a lot quicker in this way.

Hi,

I am a big fan about deleting inactive users, and have used the ACP method in the past. Can the 30 days be changed to another number? I have a slightly longer leniency for accounts that have been activated, but haven't logged in.

Hi, I have version 3.1.1 and apparently the extension does not work on it. download the file, unzipped, uploaded it to the server ext / phpbb / inactive_users folder, and when I go to the option manage extensions, does not recognize the extension.

and tried renaming the extension of various forms and still not recognized, deleteinactiveusers, delete_inactive_users, inactive_users, inactiveusers, but that does not work. :lol:

Have 3.1.1 too, extension does work (does not come in extension tab but in board features)
Did however change the code to accustom 600 days, was max 99 days but found that too much for one run. ;)
Will gradually lower it back of course.
not activated and stil new
So, only those who are member of the "newly registered users group", not members de-activated by the admin with 0 postings due to *whatever reason* the admin had to de-activate them.

The path is forumhulp/DeleteInactiveUsers for this extension.

Try our "Upload Extensions" extension, it will unpack for you in the right folder in your ext folder
