A way to change post count would be needed if a forum section on a board went from not adding to post count to adding to post count...or if a topic is moved from a forum that doesn't add to post count to a forum that does. phpBB apparently has this "bug" of the post count not updating by itself when either scenario happens.Lumpy Burgertushie wrote:not sure why you would need to be changing post count very often. however, is this just a statement of fact or are you requesting an extension to do the same thing or what?
have you looked through all the extensions in development to see if anyone has started one?
That is because each individual post has its own flag. Changing the forum's postcount permission does not change each individual post's flag.Jessica wrote: if a forum section on a board went from not adding to post count to adding to post count.

Whilst that is true it is not recommended that you make direct changes to the databaseAlpha Kitten wrote:You can change it in the database without using an extension
Go to your database, tablename(phpbb by default)_users, next you'll see a bunch of different rows, find the user you want to edit and edit "user_posts".John connor wrote:Forgot I created this topic. I'm amazed that there isn't an extension for this. In the mean time where in the database do you change post count? I'm not privy to editing the database, but if I have to I will. I do make frequent backups.
