XF 1.5 Deleted account still shows users name


Active member
Their posts shows them as guest but there user name still shows on their posts. How do I get rid of that? I've had a look thro the database & can't see it in there.

Sorted it eventually by a lot of db edits. Luckily the account in question didn't have a lot of posts.

It'd be a rare happening but is there anyway to prevented posts from a deleted account showing the user name?

Easiest solution... change the username first then delete account.

Unless you want all deleted accounts to have the same 'name'. Then you can do targeted queries on user_id = 0 (guest).
