bp-core.php: account deletion error message needs to be more descriptive

Reported by: 3sixty's profile 3sixty Owned by:
Milestone: 1.5 Priority: normal
Severity: Version:
Component: Core Keywords: error, error message, delete, delete user


I spent an hour troubleshooting my inability to delete an account before I realized that the problem was that account deletion was turned off in the admin panel. The error message in bp-core.php is misleading, and simply says: "There was an error deleting (spam-username) from the system. Please try again"

The error message needs to be more descriptive, such as:

"There was an error deleting (spam-username) from the system. Please try again, or check your BuddyPress settings to ensure that Account Deletion is enabled."

  • Milestone changed from 1.2.4 to 1.3

String freeze for 1.2 branch. Moving to 1.3 for review.

There was a typo in the trunk that was making the Settings subnav not respect the 'Disable user account deletion?' dashboard option, so that users may have been able to see and click that link even when they wouldn't in fact be able to go through with the deletion. That has been fixed, so that the situation you mention above should never arise.
