  • A question about posts

    I was wondering is there a way to call up from the database the identity of the person who made a particular post. Say post #500 or #1000 or #10,000?

    and if there is a way is it the same procedure for both 3.5 and 3.0.7 or would they be different processes. I have a live version of 3.0.7 and a test of 3.5 on my pc I would like to know this question for both versions.

    Run this query:

    SELECT username FROM post WHERE postid='xxxx';

    ...with 'xxxx' being the postid number.

      Also you can try this to see if it is what you want: (It just brings up the actual post)
