XF 2.1 "Users with permissions set" cannot be removed


Well-known member
If you set custom permissions for a user on /admin.php?permissions/users/ and then remove the custom permissions user is not removed from"Users with permissions set" list.

I used "Clean up permissions", changed permissions to "No" but no matter what i do that user is still on "Users with permissions set" list.

It likely means there is an orphaned permission somewhere which cannot be unset. This can usually be left over by an add-on, particularly if it was a pre-XF 2.0 add-on.

It may be possible to ascertain which permission specifically by running the following query:

FROM xf_permission_entry
WHERE user_id = X
