  • @velocio How do I delete a user from a Microcosm forum. I know how to ban someone but their name still appears in the memebrs list. I suppose once someone is deleted they aren't then banned?

  • I do it using SQL.

    Basically I need to move all of their content to a user called @deleted and then nuke their profile, and only nuke their email if they have no other profiles on any other Microcosm site.

  • Thanks. So I have to learn how to use SQL. There's no delete profile button?

  • Firstly apologies if this is in the wrong section, I don’t know what this function is even called to be able to search.... how do I create these hidden drop down posts like this­

  • Excellent, thank you.

  • Since the "Upload a file" file selector doesn't work in Firefox, can you make a note in, maybe the 'Formatting help' text about being able to drag and drop images? D&D actually seems to work.

  • It half works; you have to do it twice for a file and the file will be uploaded when you hit "Post reply". Sucks for multiple files, though. If I'm attaching more than one image, I put one in the first edit, then do another in a subsequent edit and so on.

  • I think I'll join the 1990s and be like all the other cool Windows for Workgroups kids with their OMG drag and drop. Maybe if there was a little paperclip that helped with discovering all the different ways to attach images... "Looks like you're swearing at LFGSS again... "

  • with their OLE drag and drop

    That way lies madness.

  • @Velocio is it possible to change the title of pm's?

  • No. Which was by design to prevent abuse and keep privacy high.

    I don't version control pm titles, and I was wary of those who would use that to attack others and hide their activity by editing it.

    I guess I could version control them, but I also wanted s simple way that when a pm is deleted by everyone that we truly delete it from the database and cleaning up version controlled data is harder.

    End result, I chose to keep pm titles simple and uneditable to prevent abuse and to ensure privacy
