    How can I hard delete an user?

    This add-on is for undeleting a user that has been hard deleted. By default in XF the only way to delete a user is to hard delete them.

    Hello
    After migration to XF some users lost their account and those accounts transformed to guest users. with help of this add-on is it possible to assign those post to new accounts?

    Yep, that should work, depending on the software you're migrating from it may put _guest at the end of the username, but that's just a matter of changing the username. You'll still need to know their email and other details to undelete the user

    I've migrated from Vb4, I know them and I can ask them.

    Thanks for your information

    Trying to remember if I bought this..in which I lost the download to if so. I wish xenforo has a purchase history option.

    Are you able to look up purchases for this, going crazy here trying to figure out if I did or not.

    Go to your ThemeHouse.com account and login. You can view purchases there :)

    Ah was this a requirement for a while, if so I probably didn't sign up then, pretty good at remembering that to say the least, and that may answer my question :p

    Just bought it thanks, I was afraid as I didn't see a user I deleted but I assume it takes a while to cache.

    @Jake B. I deleted a user almost 3 months ago, after changing their username etc.
    is it possible to use this to then restore the said account?
    What credentials do I need if any to restore?
    Additionally I saw you mentioning email addresses, are these left anywhere in the database after a member is removed?
    Thank you

    It creates the user based on the username stored on the content,i don't think the email is stored anywhere, at least not in default xenforo

    Okay so if the username is changed, then the account deleted, recovery using this would be slim?
    However from say today onwards, keeping names as they are and removal etc, this would help should recovery be required?

    You'd still be able to undelete the user with this add-on, it'd just have that changed username. Just to be clear, this add-on isn't necessarily meant to completely recover the account. The email, password, any personal details and any permanently deleted posts will no longer exist. It will just recreate the account with the same username that is on all of the posts.

    That's fine, so it recovers the original account with some info missing, or recreates? as in duplicates?
    I will PM you as I am needing to recover something specific.
     
  17. Once you upgrade and install the add-on, where does the list show up in the ACP?

    What do you mean, exactly?
     
  19. I mean where is the list of deleted users?

    It should be under the Users tab, a link called "Undelete Users"
