Remove bulk action checkbox for Super Admin

Reported by: umeshsingla's profile UmeshSingla Owned by: sergeybiryukov's profile SergeyBiryukov

The Bulk action checkbox serves no purpose for Super Admins in a multisite or admin in a normal site.

The only action allowed for Superadmin in a multisite is to mark it as not spam, which is doubtful in its place, Why should a spam user be allowed to get Superadmin privileges in first place?

I suggest to add a filter with default value as false to hide the bulk action checkbox for Superadmins or just not show it permanently without any filter.

If it is suppose to be considered, I can submit a patch

Which screen are you referencing here that only has a mark as not spam option?

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

This makes sense. We do the same thing with a network's main site right now in the sites list table. If we aren't going to allow the action here, we can make it easier not to accidentally select it.
