Hi everyone,

Concern: When deleting a user in WordPress Multisite the default option is to delete all their content.

Because it is easy to confirm a deletion by reflex content could be lost to a mistake and not recovered unless a backup is restored.

Possible Solution: By default select another user to assign the content to.

The linked image is an example of the default option after hitting delete on a user within multisite user administration.‹-Network-Admin-Pitzer-College-Sites-—-WordPress.png

Thanks in advance for consideration.

Additionally when a user is selected... Delete all is still selected by the radio button.

Possible Solution: Select Attribute all Content to: user automatically.

Hi there, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the report.

This was partially fixed in [22166] / #20045, but not for the network admin, as noted in comment:13:ticket:20045.

We're already tracking this issue in #23361, let's continue the discussion there.
