automatically remove inactive users after (x) days?

Post by schwim »

Hi there,

If the setting exists, I'm missing it. Checking today, I saw inactive users from over a year ago when I moved to phpBB 3.x. Is there a setting in the ACP that will delete users that don't activate their account after a certain period of time?

You can do this using the prune account features

Hi there and thanks very much for the reply.

To clarify, I'm aware that I can delete them. I would like to know if there is a way for the board to automatically delete a user that hasn't activated his account in a set period of time.

thanks,

I thought that was possible using the Prune Users feature?

If it isn't, you would need a modification. Or, if you are knowledgable in PHP / SQL you could set up a cron to clear out users that have been inactive for x amount of days

Hi.

Look the Delete Inactive User Timer v0.5.1.2 Beta MOD.
Maybe, it can be the solution for you.
