Confused about deleting users


(Daniel Lynch) #1

So I have a user whose post count says 0 on the admin page, but it still says: “Can’t delete all posts. Some posts are older than 60 days old. (The delete_user_max_post_age setting.)”

And there is no delete button for the user, it says: “Users can’t be deleted if they have posts. Delete all posts before trying to delete a user. (Posts older than 60 days old can’t be deleted.)”

So, how do I delete this users posts, even though they seem to have 0 posts? And how do I delete the account? Thank you.

@Falco: After following the console commands in the link above, it seems the user has one post, in a hidden thread. Could this be the issue? I would unhide the post and delete it but I’d like to help you debug the issue and deleting the user is not urgent.
