How to delete users that have not clicked activation link

    I created a bunch of test users from the domain/register link and did not receive an activation email for them. Later realized that I have to use the domain/wp-signup.php page to register instead. Now the problem is that I am not able to delete the users with pending activation because they don’t show up in WPMU users list and I can’t register new users with the same name or email address. How can I delete those pending users?

    Also, I deleted the users that I registered through wp-signup (from the WPMU site admin->Users section). However, when I try to register those users again, it gives me an error that those email addresses are already taken.

    I dont have any email address to test anymore!

    This question is about wpmu and not buddypress. anyway, those nonactivated users are deleted after 3 days (as far as I remember). There’re also plugins to enable the same email address registrations.

    why dont you just get a catch all email address its way better

    then you can make up email addresses on the spot and know where the mail is coming

    its so useful that everyone should do it – you have infinite addresses because it always appears in your inbox

    try it ,,

    Thanks,

    I registered through buddypress so was not sure if it was an issue with its integration with WPMU. I guess Ill just wait for a few days for the emails to be available.

    If you are comfortable with SQL and database lookups, you can find the relevant signups with a query like this:

    SELECT * FROM wp_signups WHERE active = 0;

    Then you can delete the signups that you want to reuse for testing.

    what if we wanted to collect all the active=0 (non activated emails/users) and resend an activation email?

    is there a way to easily resend the activation email to non activated users?

    Heh. Of course, I hope you at least TRIED to google that query, Enlightenmental1. I’d hate to think you hadn’t.

    I googled, and found this thread http://mu.wordpress.org/forums/topic.php?id=5827 which was started about a year ago by a suspicious chap under the name of “apeatling.” Rings a bell but I can’t quite place it… ;)

    The link’s dead but if you ask him nicely he might still have the code elsewhere.

    hmmmm… how did you find that!? I searched months ago for this, but found nothing…. only stuffs on password reset…

    (proly cause I was searching resend activation with spam and creating spf record)

    and here I thought I was the best googler in the world!

    @kunal17, its not quite the same thing but yes you can do it with gmail by adding a plus sign on the end with another string?? like user+website@gmail.com??

    my is different in that all mail sent to any address on my domain comes to me unless i have previously createrd the address as a mailbox

    either way, if it helps you register more accounts :)
