Product Details

Description / Features:
Based on the very popular "User Self Delete" add-on this completely rewritten PRO (for professional!) version of our add-on adds several indespensible features for the administrators of professional and reputable XenForo forums. In addition to the highly optimized code this PRO version is also more robust and reliable compared to the LITE version, thus the right choice for even very large discussion sites.

This add-on allows your members to delete their own account at your XenForo forum. The ability to delete their own account is controlled by a user group permission. If they have permission, they can see a link to a page in account settings and -optionally- also in account navigation drop down menu where they can request the deletion of their own forum account.

All the user has to do is (optionally) enter a reason and their current password. A full explanation of the process is described including the length of the grace period before the account is actually deleted, the content to be deleted and the contact details should they need to contact you.

Once the user has marked their account for deletion, they can no longer use the site during the grace period. All pages will redirect to the deletion page. If they wish to take part in the community again, they can cancel their deletion on this page any time during the grace period.

The user requesting deletion will get his user title changed to "Pending Deletion" (admin option available) and will get his personal conversation system disabled (admin option available) or an autoresponder will be activated informing senders of personal messages about the user not being able to read or respond (admin option available, only with Conversation Essentials add-on installed).

Also a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the contact address of the account to be deleted to inform the owner about this request (admin option available). It is also possible to send a copy of this confirmation e-mail to the admin of the site to inform him about deletion requests (admin option available).

One day prior to actual deletion a reminder mail can be sent to the account owner to remind him about the upcoming deletion of his account (admin option available).

In your XenForo admin control panel (ACP) you can find a new "User Self Delete" log. In this log you can see all deletion requests, their reasons and current state (pending, cancelled or deleted). You can either manually clear this log from all unprocessed entries or set a time period after which all old entries will get deleted automatically.

In addition you -as the admin- are able to cancel each deletion request directly from the ACP.
