User Killer for Joomla 1.5 Download


Tired of "garbage" users in your Joomla site? This simple plugin is a low-overhead tool that removes users who register but don't verify within a given period of time. It can also kill users who verify but don't log in within a different time period. Either of the time periods can be configured or disabled.

User Killer won't bog your system down. The plugin fires on every page request, but only does significant work once per day (also configurable).

User Killer also removes users cleanly by using the Joomla core. This causes user delete events to fire, which should clean up users in well-written extensions that require extended user information (access control, forums, social networking, etc.).

Release Notes

Version 1.1.0

  • Introduced a kill limiter. Defaults to killing at most 100 users per run. If any users are killed, the next run is scheduled after a shorter interval. The limit and short interval are both configurable (default 100 users, every 5 minutes). This prevents long transactions when UserKill is first installed on sites with a large number of garbage users.
  • Added a debug feature. If debugging is set to "Admin Only", the plugin only works on back-end requests, and messages are displayed detailing what the plugin is doing. If debugging is set to "Admin and Front end" then messages are displayed on all requests; this setting can result in the display of confidential information and is not recommended for a production site.

Version 1.0.2

  • First public release
