Is there a way to modify a user's post count? I brought my users over from another forum, and would like them to retain their post counts.

I tried to simply modify the table, but as soon as I upgraded, the post counts were put back to normal.

Thanks!

The consistency checker will always restore the post counts to their actual #s when it is run. You have several alternatives at your finger tips for this problem.

1st you can write an importer to import old messages into FUDforum you're running this not only retain the user post counts but the old messages as well.

2nd you can create a VERY simple script that you can add to the end of consistency checker that will add post counts to users of your old forum. This can be done in about 5 lines of PHP code.
