    Hi, a few of my regular users have recently changed their usernames. Is there any way to update all the likes and quotes to reflect the new username? Is there a way to do this for the whole database or even a way to do it for each person individually.

    Also is there a way to do it for when users have been tagged with the old [bd] tag me add-on?

    As far as I know, there is not, but this is fixed in XenForo 1.2.

    Not even with a database query?

    So in 1.2, the quotes and likes get updated when the username changes?

    Quotes, no, because they are hard-coded, but likes do get updated.

    Do quotes/ tags to their old username get updated now in 1.4/1.5? Is there an addon that does that (parse posts and quotes to update to new username)?

    No. You could use the Find and Replace add-on in the Resources section to change all occurrences of the old username to the new one.
