Has it ever happen to you when a user in a moment of angry deletes his/her account and later comes back? Or his/her account was deleted by the evil admin and all his/her posts appear as guests? If it has happen, then this mod is for you.

With this mod you can assign back his/her posts and threads. All the user has to do is to register again, be that with the same username as before or a new one. Then you can reassign back all their posts.

I know that this can be also done with a query at phpmyadmin, but this mod is meant to make it easier for those that are not so tech swavy and are not familiar with phpmyadmin and are afraid of messing things up.

Installation:

To install the mod, upload the includes folder to your forum root folder and then import the Restore Posts And Threads.xml file inside the mod package to Plugins&Products in the acp of your forum. Then go to the mod setting option: Restore Deleted User. It can be found on the left side of the Admin Panel, right above the Maintenace section. And enter the information accordingly.


Note: After assigning the posts and/or threads, go to: Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Update Counters and run the Rebuild Thread Information, Rebuild Forum Information, Update User Names, Update Post Counts.

Note, before you run the last option ( Update Post Counts), read the description under the title.

You can not "delete" a user when deleting a thread/post. It's a separate function from the admincp to prune an account.

Is it 100% necessary to run the last option, if you dont would that mean the reassigned user wont have a post count for all their posts? If so, couldnt we just view all posts by the user and stick in their post count from there?

Thanks.

I guess you can do it like that as well by entering the post count manually at their profile when editing the user in your Acp.

Thank you Borbole, is it expected to cause high server loads when assigning them back? I mean with users with around 3k posts.

Tried this on a user with over 3k posts and the server had very high loads and eventually I had to just suspend the account and unsuspend it and then disable the product to stop the query. It doesnt appear to have affected the users posts at all though after updating the ones mentioned other but without running the last one, I dont think it was assigning them successfully. I will have to try on a much smaller post count to verify.

Okay, I have tried on a deleted user that had only two posts, the query sends the server wild no matter how many posts needing reassigned and it doesnt appear to work at all and this is after testing using all instructions including the post counts update. Hope this can be fixed as its nice and simple to use

True, can anyone else confirm the same issues I am having? Are all of the files within the zip? I would love for this to work for me. On the smaller post count deleted user I tried again without the server issue but it isnt reassigning the posts at all.
