restore deleted member

Post by BB1955 »

One of our members was deleted by accident. Any way to "un-delete" them.

Their old posts are still there with their username on it, but the username is no longer active.

Or, is it a "done deal"?

Hi,

Deleting an account cannot be undone. They are permanently removed from the database.

If you deactivated an account instead, then they can be reactivated.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

It appears that most of the members on my board haven't been on for at least a month :cry:

With the help of the STK it should have been possible to bring two users together. Is this no longer available for the new phpBB versions?
Merge users: Allows you to merge two forum users into one account.
Wouldn't the posts have to be reassigned?
