Fixed Merged user accounts and "ignore"

Harpers Tate

Well-known member
I have had reported an issue surrounding merged user accounts and other members ignoring that user.

User A had User B on ignore.
User B registers again as User C.

B and C are merged into C.

1: User C's posts are not hidden (ignored) to those who want to ignore him
2: User A cannot add User C to their ignore list because the system reports it's already present; so is totally unable to ignore C.
3: User B does not appear on user A's list of ignored accounts, so it can't be un-ignored (so as to allow 2).

Any help or suggestions? Or is this a merge bug?

Thank you for reporting this issue, it has now been resolved. We are aiming to include any changes that have been made in a future XF release (2.2.5).

Change log:
Ensure that user ignore caches are rebuilt correctly when merging users.
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.
