Hey there, i'm on wp foro 2.0 which is working fine. I have an existing issue though as new fake accounts get created everyday and I now have 120,000+ fake / inactive accounts. I have posts setup to moderate first so it's not impacting my forums but I would like to clean up these inactive accounts so my DB is not cluttered up and slowed down. Can you let me know:

 

1. How to delete inactive accounts (anyone who has not posted)

2. Is there a way to block the spammer fake account creation?

 

Thanks,

Hi @alinke,

Navigate to Dashboard > wpForo > Members, select inactive, from there you can bulk delete inactive users from your website.

If the count on the screen is small, press on Screen Options button in that same page(Top-right part of the page) and increase the number of how much members can be shown in one page.

Please note that if the count is too big, you will get an error: Request-URI Too Long, that means that your server cannot handle the request size so you should decrease the number.
