Hi there, I have this strange issue with ghost users, or orphan users, who appear in Members Directory, but are not in the list of users in the Dashboard.
The users have been deleted some time ago, and now suddenly appears in the Members Directory.
The users can be blocked and reported, and appears in the Moderation Queue, and acts as suspended, but the list of suspended users is empty.
Any idea what is going on here, why can this happen, and how do I delete these orphan users?
is there any chance you are on a multisite? In case of multisite, the user should be deleted from Network Admin->Users screen.
If not, Please check wp_users table and see if the deleted users are present or not? They should not be there.
If they are, something is disabling complete deletion of users.
