View Full Version : Can't Delete Users

08-30-2004, 09:58 AM
After a bit of research and frustration, I've determined that it is not possible to delete a user in this version of PHP-Nuke without corrupting the site and forum database.

I will try to fix the bug in PHP-Nuke, or at least figure out how some way to turn the users entry off in the member list, but until then I can't honor requests to remove a user.

In a worse case scenario, I can disable an account so a user can't log in, but I cannot actually remove the account.

Isn't that up to the individual,to delete their account?
I know in most groups you can leave the group.

You can leave, but you can't remove yourself from the login database. At least not right now. When you try (or when I try to remove someone) nothing happens. No error, but the account is still in the member list.

I'll look into it as soon as I get a chance. I'm gonna be pretty tied up over the next few days.

I have a policy of not deleting accounts. If the user causes problems (thankfully we haven't had that problem) I will disable the account.

I personally think it's up to the person to quit - if they want to, all they have to do is not visit the website.

Sometimes people change their minds and I got tired of deleting/restoring people so now I just don't do either (unless they are accidently deleted or something).

Ok, I've fixed this bug, and acounts may be deactivated or removed.

But do not hit the delete button for me. :mrgreen:
Even if,I for some unknown reason,which won't ever happen,leave.

Yeah, I should have left it broke, but the programmer in me couldn't leave it alone.

It is a feature I hope I never have to use.
