  • Finding and deleting orphan posts

    In preparation for upgrading to V5.4.3 I would like to know is there an easy to find posts that were made by members of our forum that have since been deleted.
    Members showing as Guest are deleted members.

    These aren't technically Orphan Posts. You should be able to search by the username Guest in the AdminCP under Node Tools -> Prune.

      Then I don't know of a way to do this. I'll make an improvement request to update the system so it can find posts by guests.

      Is this likely to be implemented in 5.4.4?

        No. 5.4.4 is in Release Candidate stage. No further changes will be made to it. Even 5.4.5 already has its features and bug-fixes defined.
        Also there's no guarantee it will be implemented at all.

          It is currently in the Developer Queue. It hasn't been assigned to a development version yet. Best way to track and issue is to visit it and click the star icon.
