Delete users with no posts

  • What’s the MySQL command for deleting users with no posts written, or not loggin since a particular day, etc.? Is there a plugin for this kind of stuff?

  • You can delete them through the admin panel

    I know. I mean not manually. Because there might be thousands of them.

    It must be a very simple MySQL command line. Anyone? Please. My database is exploding…

    If you are running MySQL 4.1 (does not work with 4.0), you can do this:

    delete from users where id not in (select distinct post_author from posts) and user_login != ‘admin’;

    I added the extra check for the user “admin” because I never post with that account.

    This does NOT check if the person has posted comments. You might want to consider that before running the query.

    My host is actually using version 4.0. How can I use this in that version?
