[resolved] What is the status of user_status? (2 posts)

    I'm trying to figure out what user_status in the user table (WP 2) is used for?

    Searching the code, I only find it in upgrade-schema.php

    Is this an old element, a new one for future use, or can I just adapt it to serve some new purpose?

    The user_status field is effectively a *dead* record in the database. It's been that way for some time.

    You could certainly make use of it for your own purpose, but as it is a sort of deprecated or unusued element, it's always possible it will be dropped from a future version of WordPress. Or even be put back to work.
