RO Users 2.0.0 released

This release of RO Users has been long overdue and with the rebranding of the new website it has taken a step back but today we have a brand new release for you. We have added a couple of new features that makes live easier as an administrator.

Supported extension

The list of supported extensions now consists of:

  • EasyDiscuss
  • HikaShop
  • Kunena
  • RD-Subscriptions
  • VirtueMart

If a user has a record in any of these extensions, that user will not be deleted.

Whitelisting usergroups

The whitelist has been extended to not only include any given email address but now you can whitelist one or more usergroups. Users in any of the whitelisted usergroups will not be deleted.

Cleaning usergroup mapping table

Joomla keeps track of which users belong to which usergroup and does this in the usergroup_map table. Over time this table can become corrupt, with users still in the table that no longer exist in the system. RO Users will clean out these invalid entries as well now.


The logging has been improved as well. You can now set if logging should be done to file or screen or both. The logfile that is being created has a date added to it, to prevent the file from becoming huge and in addition it will make it easier to find the correct logfile.
