Is there an easy way to remove an author using the admin zone?

I go to Content > Authors > Setup or Merge

I can select the specific author, but there's no delete option.

I believe I can use PHPadmin to easily do it, but hopefully there's a way within composr itself.

Thanks! :)

Yeah, that's confusing. I'm adding this to the docs which should clarify what you're seeing…

You can delete any author that has been set up by going to set it up, similar to how editing any other content in Composr.
Authors that have not been set up can not be deleted as they only exist due to references by other content.

Welcome back Eric btw :).

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
