    When you delete a WP admin or any other account, you will be shown the option to move posts/pages into another account and another author

    If you delete admin, all the posts/pages will still be available with other accounts. It will not delete posts/pages.

    Thanks

    @deepak Rajpal: you’re wrong. See my answer above.

    @songdogtech
    Thanks for the clarification, but i have tested on a multi-site. i have deleted ‘admin’ using other administrator ‘admin2’ account. It did not provide any options and after deletion all admin’s post were simply there.

    @deepak: and who was the author of those posts? They can’t be”simply there”.

    @needsomewphelp: as songdogtech said:

    @songdogtech and @media X

    Both of you are right. It will give option to move posts into other account.

    In my case I was removing user in multi-site from one instance, and it was not asking any such option.

    But in single site or in mulitsite’s global users section it asks 🙂

    Thanks a lot guys..

    I’m trying to delete my admin account after creating a new admin, using multisite.

    I’m not getting any options to transfer posts, either on main network or subsites. What will happen to the posts and authors?

    I get this message when trying to delete..

    “Transfer or delete posts before deleting users.

    Warning! User cannot be deleted. The user admin is a network administrator.”

    @fpats: ask here http://wordpress.org/support/forum/multisite in a new post rather than a month old thread.
