Joomla 3.3 Tutorial – How to Delete or Block a Super User

I’ve been reading other forums and I guess in previous version of Joomla it was not possible to delete Super Users.  I just upgraded my Joomla to 3.3 and now I’m able to block or delete SuperUsers.    You must login as a super user to be able to delete another Super User.

See below:

1.  Block a Super User in Joomla 3.3

  • Login to your Joomla 3.3 as a Super User
  • Click on ‘Users’, ‘User Manager
  • Select the Super User to Block
  • Click ‘Block’

If the super user tries to login to their account, they will get an error message:

“Warning: Login denied! Your account has either been blocked or you have not activated yet.”

Select the super user to delete and click on delete.  Be careful when you delete because there is no way to retrieve a deleted user.  If you want you can choose to just change the Super User group or block the user instead.  Steps below to delete a Super User:

  • Login to your Joomla 3.3 as a Super User
  • Click on ‘Users’, ‘User Manager’
  • Select the Super User to Delete
  • Click ‘Delete’
