Check if user has posts when deleting

    When deleting a user, WP currently asks if you want to delete the user's posts or attribute them to a different user. In many cases, the user won't have any posts so this is an irrelevant/extra step.

    I know it's just one click, but it also would be a matter of a simple 'if' statement to simplify this operation.

    It's also a really good ARE YOU SURE step though :)

  3. Agreed the 'Are You Sure' step is necessary, but the post attribution part is not.

    Agreed. It's an annoying step of deleting a user. It also makes you doubt your action some times, because you may know in advance that this particular user have no posts, but when the system still asks you to assign the posts to another user, you start questioning if you were wrong or if you perhaps picked the wrong user..

    Simply put, it does add unnecessary confusion in some scenarios. It's a good idea to get rid of it when it's not needed, but to keep the confirmation no matter what.

    I personally like the warning just being there because it reminds me to not overlook it. Just my 2 cents.
