Support » Networking WordPress » WordPress multisite user deletion and post transfer

  • tekknolagi



    I went to delete a user on WordPress Multisite, where I have several subsites. I got the confirmation page for the user, deleted the user… and was given no option to transfer posts.

    How can I delete & transfer painlessly for multiple users? In “normal” WordPress, this is very simple. Just delete, select who to transfer the posts to, etc.

    Thank you 🙂

    Does the user have posts? (This works in WP 3.6, so it may be something that is busted in 3.5 and I’ve forgotten…)

    *ponder* I think the best way would be to go to each site, search fo all posts by that user, and reassign them before deleting. Which sucks, or you can wait for 3.6 (or upgrade to the beta).



    The user has at least 100 posts. How can I safely upgrade to 3.6 beta?
