View Full Version : Change a user's username
February 10th, 2006, 03:53 PM
Using photopost with the vbulletin user database, a user requested their username be changed; now in some areas in photopost I'm seeing the new username (e.g. the member gallery title) but in others (e.g. under each photo itself) I'm still seeing the old username? Any ideas on what I need to do to get the new vbulletin username to replace the old everywhere?

In Admin => Scan Database use the resync username on photos and comments option ;)

Many thanks - worked like a charm for the problem in question.
One new problem however surfaced (or maybe I just didn't notice it before today which is possible I suppose) - if you click here http://www.boatdesign.net/gallery/showmembers.php look at the very first thumbnail - it's now linked to http://www.boatdesign.net/gallery/showgallery.php/cat/500/ppuser/0 which returns me to the same page. How do I delete this one image which no longer has a username?

Edit the photo in question and assign it to yourself or delete it. It belongs to no one probally someone you deleted

How exactly do I get to a screen where I can edit or delete the photo in question?
I guess the only way is to search for the filename in phpmyadmin and edit the database directly with phpmyadmin? Or is there an easier way?

Was unable to locate the photo from photopost by searching for filename, so searched using phpmyadmin, located the photo, and deleted via photopost by entering the url manually.
