Delete multiple account by email

Post by Vastasia2016 » Wed Oct 05, 2016 8:04 am

Hi there,

I have a problem. I have the necessity to erase simultaneously several accounts but the system allows to do this only with user name, not by email.

Here, I need to erase simultaneously several accounts of which I know the email. It's possible to do it? Thank you.

You can search the username giving the email in the search form, collect the usernames and write them into the "delete"-Form

The Find-a-Member search page automatically puts the usernames into the box for you when you checkmark them after searching by Email.

Thanks for the answers, but your suggestions would be helpful if users were few, but I want to erase 170.

I wish there was a faster method, or MOD that made this work.

I explain the problem.

Users who register in the forum will also sign up to the newsletter. Every time I go to look at the unsubscriptions on newsletter platform and download list of this email. Here, I would like to have a tool that allows me to cancel dozens (or hundreds) of users using their email.

ACP > Users and groups > User security > Prune users: both Username and E-mail accept wildcards: enter *, then click Submit button. This will list all users. You can use this more sophisiticated, like *@g*mail.* or *smith.

If you want to
  1. enter multiple e-mail addresses (search patterns) and/or
  2. enter multiple usernames (search patterns) and/or
  3. see e-mail addresses in the list to confirm, along with checkboxes to tick off individual matching users
then say which of those you want and I'll give you instructions on how to modify that ACP module.

Hi AmigoJack,

I already knew the possibilities that you have written to me, but I wanted a more flexible tool such as, for example, enter a list of email (all very different from each other in order to use the wildcard character) and delete all users corresponding to those emails. Unfortunately this type of tool is not provided in the board.

I don't understand: option a) from my suggestions would do that to you, yet you chose none of them.
