Accounts with “blocked” or “inactive” roles are still able to be accessed?

    I’m trying to temporarily disable a user account temporarily but that simply isn’t happening. When I go to wp-admin/ms-users.php , click Edit, and select Blocked or Inactive, the user is still able to freely login.

    If this is true, the only way I can block access is to delete the account. Can someone help me fix this weird issue? Thanks.

    Do you have buddypress installed? This is not really a bp issue. Although if you do have buddypress installed, just mark him as spammer

    It definitely is a BP issue to some degree.

    @meini , I haven’t found an answer yet. I created a ticket at https://trac.buddypress.org/ticket/3098

    NO, this is NOT a buddypress problem.

    If you mark a user as Spammer, does it block him from logging in?

    Use a plugin called “wp-ban” to ban users

    [EDIT]
    “blocked” and “inactive” roles appear to come from bbPress as this is not native to WordPress. My suggestion would be to *not* use these roles at all for the moment.

    If you’re using multisite, just use WordPress’ native Network Admin user administration panel and set users as spammers:
    https://codex.wordpress.org/Network_Admin_Users_Screen

    Do not use the regular WP admin users screen for this!

    I apologize for not fully understanding the issue.
    I disabled Buddypress per @DJpaul ‘s suggestion, and @r-a-y ‘s followup post explains how to approach this.

    Thank you.

    @pjnu How had you installed bbPress for this site? Via the easy click method in BuddyPress?

    @DJpaul Yeah, the easy click method.

    I marked a large number of users as spammers to temporarily block them from the site. When I reinstated them all of their BP data had gone (custom fields, activity, etc)! I don’t know if this is ‘normal’ behaviour for BP so I suggest anyone considering doing this tests it first.

    I’ve done a complete restore from back up and am now looking for an alternative. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Thanks.

    This issue hasn’t been addressed yet. See:
    https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3099

    It’s probably best to keep backups in the meantime.

    It sounds like your patch only covers activity. When I unmarked the spammed users there was no x_profile data, friends, groups, blogs or messages either.

    I was running BP 1.2.8 and WP 3.1.1.

    … in multi-site mode.
