  • How Do I Associate Old Posts with a Deleted User

    If you acccidentally delete a user but not their posts, you can register a new account for that user, then run this query to associate the old posts with the new account:

    UPDATE post SET userid='xxx' WHERE username='Old Name';

    ....with 'xxx' being the userid of the new account.

    Then update the thread and forum counters in that order:

    Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Update Counters
