Hello,
my fourth validated phpBB3 MOD. 8-)

Update 2009-11-21: Since phpBB 3.0.6 the fix (feature) added by this MOD is added to the phpBB3 package.
So I'm closing developement and support for this MOD now.


Important information for boards converted from phpBB2 to phpBB 3.0.0:
There has been a bug at the converter in phpBB 3.0.0. So you have to select (and delete) related old phpBB2 accounts manually with following syntax:

Code: Select all

SELECT * 
FROM `phpbb_users` 
WHERE `user_type` =0
AND `user_lastvisit` =0
AND `user_lastmark` =0
AND `user_inactive_time` =0
If you have upgraded your phpBB2 board directly to phpBB3 version > 3.0.0 then you should not have this problem. It has been fixed in 3.0.1.

Bye Martin

Hello DaannO,
please look at the ACP -> USERS AND GROUPS -> Prune Users. The MOD doesn't add a completely new feature. It adds only a new option for inactive users.

It will erase users that haven't done anything and that were never active. Whether that means no posts or no logins I'm not sure, haven't looked at the code, but will be soon. :)

Hello Breea,
this is the MOD for you! :)
Look at the ACP. You can combinate several options.

Hi everyone.
I've trying this mod, and nothing different append in my phpbb forum. I've purged the cache, refresh all template/imageset/theme, and nothing different.
For example, i've 3 user that have been activated, but they never post. They don't appear in the ACP_prune.
What's wrong for me ?

PS: excuse my poor english.

EDIT: I've found my mistake. I don't use the good acp module. It's work well now. Sorry :oops: :oops:

Hello,
no. phpBB 3.0.x is feature frozen.

Perhaps 3.2.x ? Askareus ? I don't know!

It's only based on one short answer of one of the developers.

Hi there! Before I install this mod, I'd like a little bit of clarification.

I am running phpbb3.0.2 on my website.

I originally converted a 2.23 version of phpbb to 3.0.0, but after a major data loss, I made a fresh install of 3.0.2, then restored MOST of the information from my 3.0.0 backup. The user list was one of the tables I restored from the original conversion. The board now functions perfectly, however, my user list contains tons of spammers who registered back when my board was on 2.23. I can go ahead and delete all 89 pages of inactive users one by one (which takes forever), or I can install this mod. However, something always seems to go wrong when I mess with phpbb code, and the last thing I want is to have to shut down the forums again for maintenance.

Does this mod work on 3.0.2, especially considering how I've upgraded? Will it time out trying to delete so many users at once? Should I just do each page one by one?

Here's a link to my boards, btw... http://www.mikeystmnt.com/forums

Hello mikeperez,
this MOD is not a big MOD. There are only very small code changes. And so of course the MOD is working with 3.0.2, too!

IMO you can delete all inactive users by one step. Just test it with one user and then do the other ones. But please make a backup of your database before! ;)
And then use phpMyAdmin or something like this to do the initial delete action as I've posted it here: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 5#p5952625
You have to do it (only the one time) cause you have imported a phpBB 3.0.0 users table.
