Perfect. Is there a way of listing disabled accounts afterwards? The 'Disabled' column isn't sortable and I can't figure a way of listing them.
Seems like a simple request, right? Disable a specific user account without deleting the user.
Surprisingly this isn't a feature built into WordPress, and even more surprising there isn't another plugin out there that does this. There are other simple plugins that say they do this — but they don't work. There are other plugins that do things based on user role — but those are too complicated to set up user roles just to disable an account.
This does exactly what I needed — a simple plugin that lets me disable a user with just a checkbox. Simple.
Great idea for limiting access to others (admins or other users) while doing updates or maintenance on the backend.
I just created a .mo file for this plugin in pt_BR.
Here is the files: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B45nMNzIYUITenh1RWhDVzBHbmc.
PS: Thanks for the plugin. Works fine.
Works with a Multisite setup. Updating the user meta through WP-CLI is a breeze as well. Loving its simplicity, thank you very much for this plugin indeed.
Simple and effective, disabe without deleting right from the user profile. Thanks
@Jared Atchison It works for me thanks for helping.
This plugin is very simple, but also very needed. WordPress has no possibility to disabling users account and this functionality was very important for one of my websites. So I'm very happy to find this plugin and it works very good without any problems.
I agree with this:
The only thing that I can think of to add would be either a 'Status' or 'Disabled' column in the All Users screen to quickly display whether the user is enabled, or disabled.
