Ok, I have now decided to turn OFF display names, but some users still have display names in the DB...

What would be the query to change everyone's display name to their login names? (So they are both the same)

?
UPDATE w3t_Users
SET U_Username = U_LoginName

Although I'm not sure if that will pull their U_LoginName, or will actually give everyone the literal display name of "U_LoginName" so I wouldn't really recommend trying it.

If you want to make the color of the names the default color you have to type "Normal" into the color section. It will make them the forum default.

So my guess is to do...
UPDATE w3t_Users SET U_Color = 'normal'
(could be worng though. dont run that unless you ask someone)

I said I could be wrong

I canged a few and just removed the name of the color where edit the user and nothing happend.

then one of my admins said to try to put "normal", because that what all the regular users are set to, and it worked.

I have a bunch of users who I need to make their eamil / fake email and user name / display name all match. A SQL call like this would save me a lot of time

Test it with one name first.

UPDATE w3t_Users
SET U_Username = U_LoginName
WHERE U_Number= 124124

124124 = your user number

Here is the old query by RandyJG that JoshPet used in the Stylesheet Popularity mod. Since we have been able to store queries in the past couple of versions, the mod is no longer needed, but the query could still be helpful...

Code
 <br />SELECT COUNT(*) as total,U_StyleSheet as style <br />FROM w3t_Users <br />GROUP BY U_StyleSheet <br />ORDER BY total DESC <br />

I am wondering if anyone could help out with a query to basically duplicate a group under another name? I have about 5000 members and we're looking for a simple way to plan one heck of a going away party for one of our members without his knowledge. It would seem that this could be easily done by creating a new group and adding all members in the "users" group to this new group.... and then removing our guest of honor from the new group so he wouldn't have permissions to see our "hidden" party planning forum.

Any ideas? I've played with doing this manually, a couple members at a time, but it is rediculously slow going.

version of threads would be helpful since...most versions can do it already at least 6.4 and 6.5 by just adding a new user group and then selecting everyone in user group and adding them to new group?

6.4.1

I've already tried to do this through the AP using the "mass group change" but if I try to do any more then 4 or 5 members at a time it just grinds to a halt.

I need a query to do the following:

List all usernames + email adresses + number of PM's in their inbox from users with more than 2 PM's in their INBOX

How?

Ok, I think I got it, but I'm not 100% if this is correct:


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SELECT w3t_Users.U_Email,
w3t_Users.U_LoginName,
w3t_Users.U_Username,
COUNT(w3t_Messages.M_Uid)
FROM w3t_Messages, w3t_Users
GROUP BY w3t_Users.U_Number
HAVING COUNT(w3t_Messages.M_uid) > 2

I tried to run this, but my browser seemed to hang. I cancelled the query after 20 minuten (my whole database is only 40mb).

What am I doing wrong here ?

To delete pm's (like all those welcome pm's that re-appear after upgrading), try these commands:

Code

DELETE FROM `ubbt_PRIVATE_MESSAGE_TOPICS` WHERE `TOPIC_SUBJECT` = 'Welcome'

DELETE FROM `ubbt_PRIVATE_MESSAGE_POSTS` WHERE `POST_BODY` LIKE '%Welcome to our forums%'

Change the topic subject wording to whatever you send to new registered members. smile

There's still the ubbt_PRIVATE_MESSAGE_USERS table - I imagine a script would need to be written to match the pm with the topic id being deleted above and clean that out too.

This is what I do:
Code
 
SELECT R_Rating, R_Rater, U_Username, U_Totalposts, R_What
FROM _forum_Ratings, _forum_Users
WHERE R_Rater = U_Number
AND R_Type = 'u'
AND U_Totalposts < 50
ORDER BY U_Totalposts, R_Rater ASC

I get a list of Users who have less than 50 posts and have done a rating on somebedy.

I also get the name of the user who rated but I don't know how to get the name of the user who WAS rated (R_What is user ID).

Can anyone provide me with solution?

You are querying for R_What - that's not giving you the result you are looking for?

This really isn't quite a mod, but may help those wanting to increase activity on their sites. Currently it's a bit of a jump through the hoops to get emails for watched topics and forums - I've repeatedly had to tell people the couple of things they have to do to get emails.

Here's the mysql commands you put into your SQL Command window to set everyone to receive emails for replies to any topics they are watching:

Code

UPDATE ubbt_USER_PROFILE SET USER_EMAIL_WATCHLISTS = '1'

Code

UPDATE ubbt_WATCH_LISTS SET WATCH_NOTIFY_IMMEDIATE = '1'

and if you also want to set all users to receive email when they get a pm, use this one:

Code

UPDATE ubbt_USER_PROFILE SET USER_NOTIFY_ON_PM = 'yes'

And lastly, if you want all users to receive emails from admins, then use this one:

Code

UPDATE ubbt_USER_PROFILE SET USER_ACCEPT_ADMIN_EMAILS = 'yes'

note: the last one might get a few complaints since I believe it specifically is set by the user to opt out, I may be wrong - it's been a while since I was a newbie wink

In addition to those commands from Allen, I would strongly recommend editing all your emails that go out - at the moment they are very weak, and do not let the user know how to unsubscribe from the email that they have just received.

For example my notification of a PM says...

Nothing elaborate - but it gets around anyone accusing us of spamming them.

And all my emails have the subject starting...

FansFocus.Com:
