  • [Forum] How to mass ban users based on a profile search ?

    I need to ban several thousands spammers who registered inputting the same nonsensical value in a custom field in their profiles. The User Manager shows me the list, but I cannot select them all to ban them. The 'Ban users' and 'Prune /Move users' options do not allow to search values in the profile's custom field. How can I proceed ?

    There is no supported way of mass banning based on a profile field.

    You could setup a custom database query to set the usergroup of anyone with that value (if its identical) to the banned group if you wanted to try it but again this would be unsupported. You should definitely do a database backup before every trying to manually edit the database.
