This plugin helped me a lot in deleting 20k customers from a database with almost 60k customers. The plugin offers a lot of features, and thats why it is sometimes a bit tricky or buggy.. But it did the work.
I needed to delete customers that were older than 500 days and it did that, but what I didn recognize in the first try was, that after I tried to interrupt the deletion process by simply reloading the backend page, it silently kept going deleting those customers. Not a bad thing in my case, because I tested it on a dev site, but I had to shut down and restart my server localy, to securely interrupt and stop the batch process. So thats why you should use this plugin with caution! Just like the developer says 🙂
But in the end I tried also the other plugin WP Bulk Delete and that plugin didnt come with the ability to silently keep on deleting the customers. So, I switched back to this plugin “Bulk Delete” and let it do the job. Thank you!
And dont forgett to deactivate AND delete the Plugin, after you managed your users/posts/whatever, because it is a TOOL, NOT a plugin like any other. Keep your site secure by deleting Tools that are only for ONE TIME USE 🙂
Thanks again for this nice tool, Sudar!
