Housekeeping after delete-acount

  • i believe the blog posts are actually handled by wordpress (usually by re-assigning or deleting post by your choice). everything else besides private messages i believe get erased along with the user.

    I did notice that actually when you delete a user via the back-end you’re given the option to reassign or delete their posts. Not quite sure if delete post functionality is fired after a user deletes them self via the front-end. Will have to run some tests

    i was wondering about that same thing as i was replying :)

    Henry, did you find out an answer to your question? I tested that posts (in my case a few custom post types) do indeed get removed when a user removes their account. In my case, I would like to auto reassign to a different ID when a user deletes their account.

    Hi @ndh01

    In my case, I would like to auto reassign to a different ID when a user deletes their account.

    I think that functionality only happens when the member is deleted by the administrator in the WP dashboard. Posts aren’t reassigned if the member deletes their own account via the front end.

    I was hoping that there was a hook in either BP or WP that I could reassign the posts to but I can’t find anything.
