Does work for 4.3 but needs wp-config changed mention in the install instructions
By , for WP 4.3

The plugin does install and work with later versions of WordPress but it does need WordPress to be using mysqli.

If you are not yet using mysqli then, as detailed in the install instructions you need to update wp-config.php and insert:


anywhere near the top of the wp-config.php.

The activate / update mechanisms should more gracefully report the issue but the plugin functions perfectly as long as you are running WordPres with mysqli, which is also the current best practice.

This PlugIn is perfect if you need to remove a big number of spam-user-accounts from your wp-site.
Installation is easy. You have to follow the instructions - you have to fit 3 very simple things (add a line in wp-config.php & create the log directory and tell the plugin the location of this directory). That´s it. Simply perfect! Thank you very much.
This PlugIn saved me a lot of time!

Does What I Need
By , for WP 4.1

I needed something that would intelligently delete a few thousand SPAM user accounts and disable Email notifications for new accounts. This plugin does both, but unfortunately it requires a little manual coding and only removes 1000 accounts at a time so you'll need to run it several times if you have a lot. The backup file is an uncompressed SQL file which can be quite large if you have a lot of SPAM accounts. I think this is a solid plugin and I recommend it to anyone looking.

Effective and useful

Although I have a complex registration form and email verification, somehow spam user registrations are still getting created.

This plugin gets rid of them for me.

Any user registrations that have actually created a post are left alone.
