Hello,

I would like to automatically disable a user's account if they do not login for 6 months. I am using the Website Membership plugin and was wondering if there was a system field for lastLoginDate or similar that I could use. I would then create a function that is triggered daily by cron.

Any suggestions?

Thanks as always,

Greg

Hi Greg,

For this, I would probably use the expiresDate field, as it already handles the functionality of disabling a user after a certain date. You could then add some code to your header that checks for a valid user, and if one exists, then update expiresDate to be 6 months in the future. 

Let me know if you think that could work for you, or if you have any questions!

A quick note that it looks like the expiry functionality may be disabled by default for WebsiteMembership logins. To enable, look in websiteMembership.php for a line containing this code (Line 121 in the latest version):

if (@$CURRENT_USER['isExpired'])   { alert(t("Your account has expired.")); }

And uncomment it if it isn't already.

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for the suggestion. I guess there are a number of ways I could do this...

I'm currently thinking I could just take the lastLoginDate from the accounts table and do something like this on a daily cron?

select * from cmsb_accounts where accounts.lastLoginDate > 6 months and set accounts.disabled = 1

Thanks,

Greg
