XF 1.4 Resetting "watched" thread

    Is there a way (probably through an SQL query) to make all threads that a user has previously posted in become watched?

    Our conversion did not carry this in. So all users are no longer watching/subscribed to all the threads they posted in.

    Curious if there is a way to do this:

    1) by the user
    2) for a particular user
    3) for all users

    There isn't a way to do this in the UI. That said, you can likely do it with a query by selecting the thread_id and user_id from the xf_post table and inserting corresponding records into xf_thread_watch.

    yup that did it. I had to filter it for uniques and run a comparison to the existing watches to weed those out. The result was anyone who has ever posted to a thread is now watching that thread. Better than no one watching any threads at all. Thanks for the tip!!!
