Add in conf_global 'offline_group' => n°X

Recommended Posts


With COVID I have lost members/friends. I need to close the accounts of these deceased members but I don't want to delete their publications.

In this context it would be necessary to have an offline group, which has the specificity that these members do not have an email address, nor a password that could be used except the pseudo.

Therefore it is not possible to connect to it without passing through the Admin console and again we could imagine having a blocking option. These default members cannot receive messages.

Another application, for RSS feeds I had to create fake users. In this case the offline group would be ideal.

The fact that it is necessary to delete the email address of a deceased person is relative to the possible reuse of the email address by a third party which could create a security flaw.

The difference between banned and offline is mainly related to the e-mail address.

Thank you for your attention to this improvement.

It's a pretty good idea. I'm for it.

It is better to add settings in ACP where after adding a user, on his profile there will be information that this user is unfortunately dead, and his avatar and cover will be in gray color, Buttons and Online Status would be hidden or something like that. This can be done via hook.

My vision 🤭

This is just for example, please don't take it personally 😐 Surely Mevi will understand.

The idea of memorialising members has floated around for a while, and it's something I'd like to put some thought into.


maybe something like it used to be on FB
