    Deleting security groups - users still exist Link to this post

    Hello,

    I've created some user groups in the security section.

    I added some users to these groups and all was working well.

    I decided to delete the groups (thinking it would also delete the members of those groups). This worked fine...

    The problem is, i have added some new groups and tried to add the same members i had in previously but the system kicks out an error and won't let me add the user?!

    Upon checking the database I've found that the users which were in my deleted groups, still exist in the member table. Shouldn't they have been deleted??

    Does anybody know why this is happening and if its a bug?

    Thanks in advance

    As far as I know, that's how the system was built - to never fully delete members, only delete them from groups.

    I remember reading a topic on this a while ago, and don't remember all the details and the reasoning.

    Hi Lee,

    thanks for your reply.

    How blooming strange is that though?

    How do you delete members then? Thats bizzare, the members are kept in the table but theirs no way of getting to them.

    Also, after deleting the groups I noticed when I go into the access tab for a page, the groups still appear in the dropdown list??

    They should have been removed, shouldn't they?

    So let me get this straight, the groups functionality works ok if you never want to delete users or groups?

    Come on guys, can we see this issue looked at and fixed for the next release? Please.

    Ta
