vB Version: 4.1.x Rating: (7 votes - 4.29 average) Installs: 87

Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Additional Files  

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 admincp and includes folders to your forum root folder maintenaning the structure intact and then import the Restore Posts And Threads.xml file inside the mod package to Plugins&Products in the acp of your forum.

To make use of the mod go to the Maintenance area at your acp, click the drop down list and you will see a new option added called: Restore Deleted User. Click on it and configure it accordinly.


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.




If you will need support with this mod, then please post at the mod thread at my forum. Thanks

thanks man, this worked perfectly. much easier than messing around with the database. i just wanted to add a note to everyone though, make sure your new user doesn't have the same user name as your old deleted user or this won't work.

great work, thank you!

Did you mean the Update Counters option? If so, then yes.

One quick question before I use this.

The instructions and a early post (post #33) say to use the same or different name of the deleted user.

A late post (post #50) in this thread says to use a different username.

Well, which one is it?

Thanks!

You can use whatever you want, either re-register the user with the same name or a different one.

After you ran it, did you update the counters as well as mentioned in bold at the bottom of the first post here?

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.

Yes.

I put the xml file from the includes/xml file into the forum root already existing includes/xml directory.

Imported the other xml.

Filled in both screens to restore posts and threads. Answered Yes. Put in new userid. Put in deleted username (which is the sanme as the new username)

And, then did the steps you mentioned above.
