Deleted Members From WordPress “Users” Still Show on Front End in Widget

  • adamgforce



    We run a multisite with a primary parent domain ( and our members site which is the sub-domain (

    We are using the Boss Theme with Buddy Press running the most up-to-date version of WordPress.

    When a new user is created, they automatically show up on the front end. HOWEVER, when we delete a member from the “users” section on the backend of WordPress, the member still shows on the front end in the members listing on the widget or members page.

    We test the deactivation of the theme and plugin (boss for learndash) but the problem still persisted.

    The Boss theme support team suggested it was a Buddypress Core issue.

    We have not modified core files and dont have custom Php.

    We are running Buddypress 4.1.0

    Our host is WPengine

    Any help figuring out how we can make sure that when we delete a user from the backend that it is also removed from the front end would be very helpful.

    This is important as we create test accounts and then cannot remove them.

    On the members page? Before they log in ? If so, that is not standard behaviour.

    Did you check your database to see if the user was actually removed from the users table?
    Are you sure you’re actually deleting them and not just removing them from a subsite ?

    afaik – wpengine does a lot of custom caching.
    Have you tried clearing their cache?
    Have you discussed this issue with them?

    If a user is not truly deleted when deleted from the wp-admin, then that is a WP issue, not a BP issue.



    Hi Shane,

    spoke to WPengine and got this resolved!
