Partial fix Merge with user & reactions

Affected version


After merging 2 user accounts, the reactions were not merged, now under the message 2 reactions of one user. I deleted the reaction of this user completely, now under the message the inscription - the reaction of the remote user. How to remove the reaction of remote users?

We can make a change here so that the empty user row doesn't appear in the summary, but handling the per-content reaction cache is more complex, and just really not something that we attempt to do.

The "(deleted member)" bit will stay visible until such a time that enough people have reacted to the content that it doesn't display any more.

Rumour has it, that there may be add-ons that will rebuild the reaction summary for you if it is significant.

Thank you for reporting this issue. It has now been resolved and we are aiming to include it in a future XF release (2.1.2).

Change log:
Only fetch content reactions for the reaction summary if it is associated with an existing user.
Any changes made as a result of this issue being resolved may not be rolled out here until later.
