Remove all trace of one user?


I run a small geeklog for me and my friends to debate politics, etc. One of the users is in a bit of hot water at work, and wants to know if I can remove all of his posts and/or comments. Anyone know a way to do this without manually deleting every one (the site is about 2+ years old, so that would be a lot of work). Thanks in advance.

Assuming a fairly recent Geeklog version, when you delete a user, it will keep his/her stories intact, but assign them to the "anonymous" user.

If you want to get rid of all traces of that user, deleting their stories first (manually, from phpMyAdmin) should work. The comments, however, are a problem ...

bye, Dirk
