When you set up a blog you have the ability to add and remove users.

Remove User

Remove user is used when you want to remove a person as a user from your blog.

Important tips:

  • Removing a user doesn’t delete their username.
  • It isn’t possible to delete a username from Edublogs because deleting usernames can cause problems to our system.
  • If your reasons for removing a username is because you want to change the name displayed on posts or comment then your better option is to just change the display name.

Another alternative is to change their role to subscriber — as a subscriber they can only edit their profile.

Removing a user from a blog is a simple as:

1.  Go to Users > All Users 

All Users

2.  Hover your mouse over their username and click Remove


If you want to remove multiple users from your blog then you select each username you’d like to remove using the check boxes, select Remove from the Bulk Actions drop down and click Apply.

3.  Select their role (learn more about user role’s here).
