Hello,

We are just setting up wpForo on a membership site.

Upon activation a forum account was created for all of our members, including expired and inactive member accounts.  It looks like we have 10,000+ users on the forum page.  Is there anything we can do so only current members have forum accounts?

Also, what happens when someone leaves?  Can we keep their forum posts even if they're not active, or do they require an account to keep the posts & responses up?

Thank you!

I'm sorry but wpForo doesn't understand what means "current members". wpForo doesn't have a separate users system it based on WordPress user system so all WordPress users become forum users as well.

Also, what happens when someone leaves? Can we keep their forum posts even if they're not active, or do they require an account to keep the posts & responses up?

Please see the User Deleting documentation here: https://wpforo.com/docs/root/members/member-manager/#delete
