Allowing specific users to delete spam users?

  • jwack


    A couple people on my site would be willing to help me delete spam users. I don’t want to give them super admin privileges and just making the admin on the main blog doesn’t give them the “admin links” in the admin bar.

    Curious if anyone has any good ideas on this. I would like to just give a few people access to the admin bar options to delete users.

    Unfortunately, from the BP end, the only way you can do this is to give users super admin privileges. This will improve in future versions of BP, but for now that’s how it works.

    You might be able to finagle something on the Dashboard side. I believe that WP also requires you to be a Super Admin to spam users, but there are custom role plugins for WP (I think will do it, but others can correct me) that will let you, say, allow Editors to mark users as spam, or to create a new role for that purpose. They’ll have to do it from the Dashboard, but it should work.

    This feature would be great ,that way user can delete unwanted spam on his activity or @mentions .I’ve setup an filter on comments for now to prevent spam posts on activity.
    example: if you’re not friend with an user you can’t comment on his activity.

    looking forward to this feature :)



    Thanks for the replies, I’ll look into the plugin.
