Changing topic_poster_name field in database

  • Hi!

    I want to change the name of the user that started a topic.

    I went to bb_topics table through phpmyadmin and there, I changed topic_poster_name field. However, when you go to the forums, the topic author appears as “anonymous”.

    Do I need to change any other field in bbpress database? or maybe this has anything to do with the role assingment issue?

    You need to change the ID as well.

    However the moment you do a recount it probably resync the information to the first post in the topic.

    You probably need to change the poster_id somewhere. Try around. If you find out how, do tell.

    You need to change the ID as well.

    I did change both plus poster ID in bb_posts table. I re-counted but noway, topic starters still appears as anonymous.

    Do I need to change anything in bb_term_relationships table?

    Well, now, even the admin appears as anonymous whenever he starts a thread. You can actually can check my “even-deeper” live installation right now here;

    I probably did anything wrong while installing because this didn’t happen in my computer installation, but I don’t know to do.

    Is there anything I could check?
