Westors deleteMe v1.1

Release Notes

This Version works with elgg 1.7

  • great plugin! by the way, i added the <p> tag with a style float right attribute so users won't accidently click it and then accidently press enter or space bar. you never know, it could happen lol

    line 19, deleteMe.php

    $result .= '<p style="float:right"><input type="button" class="submit_button" value="' . elgg_echo("deleteme") . '" onclick="deleteMe('.page_owner().');"></p>';

  • Hi Westor,

    sorry for my bad english... Firstly, thanks for your excelent plugin! Now, I need to modify it, I would like that users to be banned instance of deleted when they press the button "Remove my profile for system". I thought that it was very simple change the source code to achieve it but I haven´t  been able to do it... Could you help me please?

    Thank you very much.

  • Ups! Sorry for my stupid question. Really, it was very easy, I only had to change the condition in the line 8 if ($obj->delete()) for if ($obj->ban('User banned'))  Ö

    The problem was that I had not working in the root directory of Elgg and I am not seeing my changes... ¡¡!!

    Thank you.

  • Ok, but is this really a general usecase for a user to ban himself?

    Do you use this to hide the user and all of his content?

    Well, this could be an option, but in that case you should inform the user, that his data are still available for his come back.

    Btw: I'm working on a plugin with a RIA interface for a more convenient administration of users. Stay tuned :-)

  • Yes, I inform the user that his profile will be hidden but his data will be available. I use ban option instance of delete option because I don´t want that all user´s interesting contributions to the comunnity are deleted. In this point, maybe we could to discuss about terms privacity... Have you heard about Facebook´s controversy around this matter?

    Thanks, I will stay tuned about your new plugin!

  • hmm. doesnt activate on my site - tried first last/last position in the plugin list - any ideas ?


  • Once i enable this i cant find the button when i log in as one of my users. I must be retarded or something is wrong.

  • Which version of elgg do you use? It works fine for me with elgg 1.7. It's quite possible the view is overwritten by another plugin? Try to move the plugin to another position.

    @knation: have you clicked the edit profile link? The plugin extends the edit profile view with an extra line holding the delete me button.


  • I'v installed this plugin and I hve this:  Fatal error: Exception thrown without a stack frame in Unknown on line 0. And I don't know why. Please help me. And sorry for my English

  • @bogdan: hmmmm - no idea, it works for me in actual elgg version. What is your elgg version and your php version? Is this error already shown if you activate the plugin or only if you delete a profile?

  • hello

    elgg works in 1.7.6?

    this plugin started automatically deleting my members from 10 to 10 .... it was horrible .. even notice losing about 100 members ... using version 1.7.10
  • The plugin NEVER deletes something automatically. It uses the same function like system, if an admin deletes one (1!) user.

    I have not time to support this, therefore read the stuff in top of this page. Use it at your own risk - of course, try it in a non production environment.


  • I read all the information the plugin but I am sorry this has happened to me. Maybe it was the version 1.7.10
  • will it become available for 1.8.2?  This would be very nice to have.

  • This could do with an update, or including in the core...
