Recove member - Nammy - 2015-08-08

Is it possible to re-active a member?  One member was delete but all the threads and post are still visible but the name is blackedout.  The member has returned to the forum with the same name prior and would like to have his old thread/post merged with new account.
Is there a way to link the old with the new?

I tried the merge but it doesn't work because the old account was deleted (thread/post still there though)

No didn't work

Did you check that changes were made (report after MySQL query).

When you know the old uid of the deleted member, I would prefer queries like:

UPDATE mybb_posts SET uid=new_uid WHERE uid = old_uid

for as many tables (posts in the example above) in which uid is a column.
