Prune inactive users

Post by Friendly »

I have about 2000 inactive users (bots) on my board. I finally managed to get recaptcha working, and have opened up my board to new registrations again, but I'm wondering how to prune inactive accounts. I've read that it's default as of 3.06, and I have 3.07, but I don't see this option anywhere in my ACP. Can someone give me a hand?

Edit: I mean accounts that have never been activated. The problem is that it's only possible to search for users who were active before or after a certain date, but not possible to select users who have never been active.

ACP> The most recently registered inactive users are listed at the foot of the page. Click on the "View inactive users" link just above this table. Click "Mark all", change the drop down from "Activate" to "Delete", click Submit

Thanks! I had been looking at that page, but didn't see the mark all link. Works a charm now.
