    Is there any way to merge users after installation? We have a user who lost their previous details so made a new account, and it'd be nice to give them ownership of all their previous posts :)

    In the ACP, edit the new user and in the Actions dropdown, choose Merge with User, then select the old user to merge with. The new account will then be merged into the old account. You can then change the password and any other details to give them access to their old account. Of course you could merge the other way around if you prefer that.

    You are a STAR, @Martok!

    Or you're just being helpful to try and convince me you're not a Changeling...

    I feel kinda stupid, but there is no "Merge users" option under the Actions dropdown menu... (?)

    If the user is a moderator or administrator (added via ACP > Users > Moderators or ACP > Users > Administrators) then you will not be able merge them ("Merge with User" will not be available from the action dropdown). Remove them from Moderators/Administrators to be able to merge them.
