Allow the users to deactivate or delete their accounts

how we can make the users able to deactivate or delete their accounts?

Hello there @Jay91!
The user can self-delete account if:

  • 1 post or less


  • their account is less than a few days old

This setting kicks in on post number 2. You can self-delete if you have 0 or 1 posts. This self-delete option is right at the bottom of their user preferences page.

If you are forum admin, you may change this setting via delete_all_posts_max and delete user max post age.

Hope this helped


Is this still the default?

Pretty sure it is. Why?


Just checking as it is being discussed on a different forum. I was wondering if it is possible to re-define these settings so a user can still delete themselves after making more posts, etc.

Sure! Adjust these settings as you please. If you are the admin. I’ll have a poke around on my forum.
