XF 1.5 Remove all custom user titels?

    Is it possible to remove all the custom user titels at once? (Batch update users does not have user titels in it)

    I want to use a user title ladder, but most of the users have a custom user title. I already set persmissions for the user title at NO, but that doesnt remove the custom user titel.

    Thanks in advance!

    Run this query in phpMyAdmin:
    UPDATE xf_user set custom_title = '';
    Take a backup first, just in case.

    I don't believe there is, unfortunately.

    There is a suggestion to add the facility to do this:


    (there's a database query in the 4th post of that thread that may work, though best to make a backup before trying it)

    There's also another suggestion about reverting to default titles when users don't have the custom title permission:


    If you agree with either or both of these suggestions, please like the first post in the thread(s). :)

    Thank you, I will give it a try.

    I think this should be an option in de batch update users function! So yes, I like the post!

    I was looking for this as well. I'll try the query although 'take a db backup first' makes me a little nervous. I'll do it on my dev server first.

    I think "take a backup" is always a disclaimer on every bit of advice offered that involved direct database manipulation. Doesn't mean it's a guess if it'll work just means you have a recent restore point of your data should the worst happen. Who knows, you might type it wrong and corrupt something!
