Bulk Delete WordPress Spam Users

Owning a blog can be tough to maintain. One of the biggest annoyances are all those pesky spam users that subscribe. Most of the time these are bots or a company doing a mass submission. Well there are plugins out there like WP-re-CAPTCHA, Sipmle CAPTCHA, SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam, or others. Now even tho you have protected your self against future spam bots and spam users you still have to get rid of all the already created users. Now I don’t know about you but I have seen sites with hundreds of thousands of spam users. This is really bad for your server, your site, your protection, and more. My first website I went through deleting users I had to delete around 4000. Now I deleted these 1 page at a time and I am not sure if you have checked but you can only delete 20 at a time on the pages. So what would that be 200 times. How nice would it be to be able to do a mass delete of just the subscribers. Well there are a couple ways to get this done easily. One most people don’t know about the option to up the amount of users shown per page. Really simple to do this go to your users section and click the Screen Option. You will find an are with a section called show on screen. You can set this to what you want. Really easy but not known by many.

Doing It Through Code

The other option is to do this with code. Another really simple way delete a bunch or WordPress spam users is to put the code below into your functions.php file and then go to your site. Once you have went to your site go back to your functions file and remove the code.

That is it really simple and really quick. Now you don’t have to spend a long time deleting 20 by 20. Do everything in bulk it is easier.
