Error message when searching for a non-existing user

Nice extension!

Just wanted to let the developer to know that there is this "A specified user for merging could not be located within the database." error message when using the Manage Users link under Quick Access.

You'll see it when you search for a non-existing user. That module is not related to this extension but I guess the error message got affected by this.

Not sure where this manage users link is. Can you provide a pic or something?

Login to ACP > General tab > (on the left) under Quick Access heading > click on Manage Users

or

Login to ACP > Users and Groups tab

then find a member that does not exists. You should see the error message "A specified user for merging could not be located within the database."

Nice catch! It is because this extension uses the same lang var as phpBB does. To fix you need to find this line in the extensions info lang file NO_USER and change it to this NO_USER_FOR_MERGE then find this line in the extensions ACP module php file $this->user->lang['NO_USER'] and change to this $this->user->lang['NO_USER_FOR_MERGE'] and that will then fix that.

Here is another similar bug.

Go the ACP > System > Mass Email. Try entering your own username. When you try to submit, you will get the following error:

A specified user for merging could not be located within the database.


Your fix above helps. I am wondering if it would be a good idea to update this extension?

I was testing this, to see if I could send myself an email (I am the admin). Just testing if the mass email is working or not?

Though I got that error, I never got myself the email. Perhaps the error wanted to say something else, but at this point, I don't know? Can the admin receive a mass email from the same admin?

UPDATE:

I got this error when I tried emailing myself using the mass email utility:

Information
The selected user does not exist in the database

is this normal?

No that isn't normal. I just tested it using my admin name on the forum and the email went out fine.

EDIT: New version has been submitted to the CDB.
