How to remove post from deleted user?

Post by shadow07 » Sat Jan 05, 2008 11:38 pm

The following is the basic SRT
Your board's URL: http://www.rdglive.com/forums/phpBB3
Version of phpBB3: 3.0.0
Was this a fresh install or a(n) update/upgrade/conversion (please be specific)? FRESH
Was this an install through your host? No, I installed it.
MODs you have installed: None
When the problem started: January 4, 2008

Additionally, you may wish to provide the following (where applicable)
Template(s) used: VistaX
Language(s) used: English
Version of PHP used: 5.2.5
Database and version used: mysql

The problem is the vistaX template ( I confirmed this when I tried a fe wother templates), for some reason it does this to users I delete but dont delete their posts.

Highlighted with a Red Box is a user I deleted but left his posts in tact and this was the result of that. How can I fix this, or how can I force delete the posts that were made with that accoutn which no longer exists?

I did try to find it on my test board, but the I did find is to delete "Orphaned attachment" and not "Orphaned posts"

Accualy I just replied to your post in definition may have put the topic to the top of the list but is not considered "bumping" All I did was reply to your post basiclay confirming that I have fixed the first post. Thefore as is not bumping. But whatever.

Jotne - please be carefule of the rules
shadow07 - might be worth asking the template author if they can shed any light on this - unless you can replicate the error using prosilver or subSilver2

This has nothing to do with the style ueds.

When you delete a user you have the option to
1 Delete user and post
2 Delete user and keep post.

The question is then how to remove the post that a user has posted when you have delted the user and kept the post?

For some reason option 2 was selected but later you regret and should have selected 1
