Deleting account if not verified

Hello,
Is there anyway to delete someone's account if they do not click the link in their email in a given amount of time? Starting to deal with spam and that is what usually gets all the new forums.

    do you mean delete account if they are in unconfirmed role (i.e. if email is not confirmed after a certain amount of time.

    you could use the cleanser plugin (select unconfirmed users) then edit prune list by date time period you want. then delete.

    or possibly the bulk edit plugin.

    personally I would use

    some people prefer other methods. some people like what I suggested.

    if you really mean "verified" - then you would need a different approach. verified is a column in user table - slightly different.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    back up your database first. before deleting records. the safest thing to do

    cleanser is best for deleting hundreds of records and mass deletion. otherwise bulkedit might be easier to use.
