Delete Me

Allow users with specific WordPress roles to delete themselves from the Your Profile page or anywhere Shortcodes can be used.

What happens to Posts, Links, and (optionally) Comments belonging to a deleted user?

Most Post types and Comments are moved to Trash. Links are always deleted permanently.

Does this plugin support WordPress Multisite?

Yes, Network Activation and single Site activation are both supported. Users and their content will only be deleted from the Site they delete themselves from, other Network Sites will be unaffected.

When using Multisite is a user deleted from the Network or only the Site deletion originated from?

If the user is registered to more than one Site on the Network they're only deleted from the single Site, their user remains on the Network registered to any of their remaining Sites. However, if the option "Delete From Network" is checked and they belong to only one Site then their user will be deleted from the Network because they no longer belong to any Network Sites.

Is it possible for a user to delete anyone but themselves?

No, the user deleted is the currently logged in user, period.

What does the Shortcode display when the user is not logged in or their role is not allowed to delete themselves?

Nothing when using the self-closing Shortcode tag (i.e. [plugin_delete_me /]). However, when the opening and closing Shortcode tags are used (i.e. [plugin_delete_me]Content[/plugin_delete_me]) the content inside the tags will appear instead of the delete link.

Where is a user sent after deleting themselves?

The Settings -> Delete Me subpanel lets you enter any URL you'd like to redirect deleted users to, set to homepage by default. You can leave "Landing URL" blank to remain at the same URL after deletion.

Is there a confirmation before the user deletes themselves?

Yes, the delete link on the Your Profile page leads to a confirmation page. The Shortcode delete link provides a Javascript confirm dialog [OK] [Cancel] by default, but may be disabled to make using a custom confirmation page easier.

May I be notified of users who delete themselves and what was deleted?

Yes. The Settings -> Delete Me subpanel has a setting called "E-mail Notification", just check the box and save changes.
