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.

Oh now I know why it was messing up, just done a search here and found someone else doing the same as me. I had been using the usernames in both damn fields, I can confirm it works a treat

There is 1 bug that I now know of, if the new user has 0 posts they do not assign and will only assign once they have made one post.

Glad to hear that you got it sorted out.

About that bug, it is not a bug. If the deelted user has 0 post then there is nothing to re-assign. Or did you mean the newly registered user? It works even if it has no posts at all.

It seems to only work for me if the new user has at least 1 post, ive tried it on the same two boards and it seems to be a pattern for me, aside from that slight issue though I am content with it

One doubt..

Will it restore the attachments (torrents) in the thread ?

Or just threads & posts only ?

After I restored a user with 1000 posts (which took 5 sec), mysql is running 120% and server is brought down to its knees. Restarting mysql didnt help, any ideas?
