When logged in as admin, I can delete my own author profile. However, there is no provision for deleting author profiles of others (e.g., the author profiles from the test data: Allen Eliis, Chris Graham, etc). How do i delete these profiles?

Thanks for your help.

Geez-

You've get him busy with that list.  ;)

Glad it will be addressed. In the meantime, I can just merge them down to one entry.

I wonder if there is any content (maybe docs) that is tied to any of these authors.

Thanks for your help.

I just assumed their names were there cause they contributed to the building of this great CMS itself.

All the TODO's on there are meant to be done, but this slipped through the cracks a bit because it's not as you think. The list there shows referenced authors, but not necessarily configured authors. In this case the team members were authors of modules and blocks, which is why they came up. That's a bit silly, we'll change that in 7.1 to make an exception for those. Generally though, if an author is configured, it can be deleted in the obvious way. If it is not configured you could 'delete' it just by stopping referencing it (in e.g. news).

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 ocPortal on fun personal projects.

Another reason to look forward to 7.1

Version 7,1 is still displaying some team members although some have been removed (e.g., Allen Ellis).

Here's a screen grab of the "Configure/merge authors" screen:

I think past changes on the records may have done this and you'll find they can now be deleted if you go through to them.

Where would I delete them?

I can delete my own author profile in "Configure author" but there is no delete option if I go through to "Configure author" of another author logged in as admin.
