This mod helps to automatically delete user account upon custom-defined rules. For example, you can delete members, who didn't comfirmed emails after 3 days, delete members, who have zero posts and didn't visited your forum for a long time, and so on.

Any conditions can be defined! Cleanup can be done in both automatic and manual mode.

Difference between built-in vB user pruner:

1. Completely automated.
2. Comfotable management of multiple rules.
3. More flexible prune criterias.

Some stat for my forum (only zero-posts users were cleared):

- last user ID 50652
- total users left 19359

60% effectivity!!!


Upload files and import product XML.

  • Enter ACP and go to Users -> Cleanup.
  • Create cleanup rules you needs, and save in inactive state.
  • Test you rules. Do manual cleanup, if you wish.
  • Activate rules (enable automatic cleanup), if you are satisfied with testing results.
Warning! Don't activate cleanup rules without testing! Don't forget to backup your forum database!

PS. Product is marked as beta, because i can't test all possible rules combinations. But those been used - works fine. If you have strange results duging testing, don't hesitate to post screenshot with your rule, and explain what is wrong.

Was NOT tested with 3.6.x & 3.7.x, but probably works.

This mod is delelopped here . Patches are welcome.

Hi, IŽd like to purge users who have 0 posts and have the same registration and last visit date. And all spammers users, for example, every user registered with e-mails, or @*

Can I mass prune using this criteria types with Users Cleanup?

I downloaded and installed this today on 3.8.5. I uploaded each of three files individually and triple-checked their locations. (users_cleanup.php is in admincp) I then imported the product XML. I do not have a "Cleanup" option under the Users menu in the navigation frame. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the product XML, but that didn't seem to fix it. What might I have done wrong?

Edit: Solved. I had to add myself to the superadministrator group before I could see it. Might be helpful for other newbies to mention that in your description.

This is a very handy tool you've created and a big time saver. Thank you for sharing!

Urgent Thread starter, we need HELP...
W have installed your plug ins
"" ISO-8859-1__Users-Cleanup-0.1.rar ""

and we tried to set it to"below 10 posts members will be deleted", and "30days inactive account will be deleted"

We didn't expect that many members have that kind of posts, which is below 10 posts. Its our mistake.

most of our member deleted ( we're so lonely with this. yesterday our members count is 1100plus. now we are only 500+ (

we don't have the back up for this month (January), we forget to backup, our only backup is last december 2010.

we love our members. and we need them..

Is there any other way to restore them? Other than to restore our back up which is Dec back up. And how can we retain the new members who registered from January 1 up to now?

I hope there is.......

This mod have "test" button for each rule. And red bold text in description, that all rules should be tested prior to activate.

There are no way to restore without backups. Sorry for bad news.
I no longer develop for vB. Use my vb addons/code as you wish, without limits & conditions. Latest versions @ github repo.
My new forum project is Nodeca. Node.js+MongoDB. If you wish to help with coding & design - feel free to join.

I tested it for 2 weeks now and it's working great here.
But be carefull with some settings.
Only thing i am missing is a setting for moving a user to another group instead of deleting the user.
But maybe a tip for the future.

Hey this is a really great addon. Very practical. I was wondering though, would it be possible to add the option to move users to a specific usergroup?

Also, I noticed that if you run a test and the mod only finds 1 user it will go straight to that profile rather than giving you the list of users and options to take.

I installed this add-on (great add-on but I just really needed to run it once to do a massive cleanup) and it worked great.

I decided to uninstall so that someone else didn't accidentally use it and mess things up.

It left remnants in my AdminCP

Under "Users" I now have: *[users_cleanup]*

How do I completely remove the product?
