Relationship Between WP Users and wpForo Members
We're in the process of standing up the wpForo forum on a new WordPress dev site and have a question about the relationship between the WordPress users and wpForo Members. Anecdotally, it would appear these are separate tables in the db, though I haven't investigated yet, TBH. To me, this would mean that there's no harm in deleting forum members whom get automagically sucked into wpForo when the plugin is activated.
Incidentally, there's one account on our dev site where we cannot delete the forum account. Since this account happens to be the default admin account for WordPress, we'd obviously prefer it not be hanging out there for security reasons. Now we can obfuscate the account by having a display name other than the WP username, but really this shouldn't be necessary. Is there some way I'm just not seeing to prevent certain users from being pulled into wpForo? Any harm in removing only the forum members after the fact? SSO is nice and all, but I can certainly see scenarios where this would be highly undesirable.
Great product so far! Thanks!
So looking in the db, any reason I can't update this record in the wpforo_profiles table and simply set the value of status='trashed'?
