I'm making a front-end user delete button but it only removes the user from the current installation and I need to remove them from the entire multisite network so they are able to sign up again with the same email if they decide. Is there a way to do this?

$userid = get_current_user_id();
wp_delete_user( $userid );
  • Can we see the current implementation? Edit your question and insert the code that does the deletion

You would want to use wpmu_delete_user:

$userid = get_current_user_id();
wpmu_delete_user( $userid );

Deletes a user from the network and removes it from all sites.


  • Totally agree the function is the way to go, but the demo code seems a little dangerous as it would delete the current user. Rarely what you'd want to do, and could cause some serious issues for anyone blindly copying and pasting :) (I've been there). Would recommend changing to just a random integer with a note to change it in comments Oct 24, 2023 at 15:35
