  • Users Not Showing Up In Pruning System

    We recently migrated to 3.01 and everything has went well so far. However, while browsing through the new admin control panel, I noticed that we had over 2000 members that were still awaiting email confirmation (via Users -> Search For Users). I decided that I wanted to delete all of the users in this group that had never posted before, and move the rest to the Registered Users group.

    What's strange is that I went into Users -> Prune/Move Users and chose "Users Awaiting Email Confirmation", but here it only showed 585 users in the group. I thought this was just a maximum, so I went through and unchecked the users with a post count over 0 and then deleted the rest. When I went back into the Prune/Move Users area for the awaiting email confirmation user group, it only showed the handful of users who had posted - it didn't show any of the more than 1500+ that were left.

    So, now I can go into Users -> Search Users and see all 1500+ that are in the awaiting email confirmation group, but I can't do anything about it (unless I edit each manually) because I can't see the same list under Prune/Move Users.

    Any idea why this would be? Is there another way I could move all users with a post count greater than 0 to the Registered Users group and delete all the rest with 0 posts?

    What search criteria did you use on the Move/Prune page? To test this I used the 'Users Awaiting' group with 'Has not logged on for x days' set to '0' and got the exact same number of users as in the search users function.

      Err, I figured it out. I scrutinized the search criteria after your post and noticed that there was a default 365 in the "Hasn't logged on since" field. Setting that to zero showed the rest.

      Thanks for the quick reply!
