XF 1.1 deleted username still appears beside posts

Hi, just recently we deleted a user from our forum on her request. After doing that, she wants her posts to be deleted as well. How do we do this now when the user is already deleted? Problem is her username still appears beside all the posts she made.

Also isn't this an issue that needs to be rectified in xf software? While deleting the user, there should have been an option to change username to something else.

Need help please. Thanks.

Unfortunately, as the user is already deleted, finding the posts will be a pain -- you may be able to do a direct query on the DB to locate them (based on username) but you will need to remove them via the interface to ensure that everything is updated correctly.
