deleted user still exists! | Forum

I had a user create a group but since then they left and now the group was created by "Deleted User".

I have tried going into the database and changed the userid from 193 (the ex user) to 1 (admin) to take over the group ownership.

This seems to have worked as admin is now the owner but the newsfeed still shows "deleted user" as the owner!  Looks unprofessional.  Can I fix this or just ignore it?

Hi !
I don't know if it will work but you can search the userid in the sql and replace it with 1 or other...

Hi Max,
I did that and yes it does change the owner but the newsfeed doesn't change!

Maybe a developer can say to us how newsfeed works ? (Or just the problem..)

Yes, newsfeed and groups are different tables. And if you change any rows in one, it won't change in second. 
Currently, this works as described Michael: if you remove group's creator, there will be "deleted user" as group's owner and the only way to change it - change it in database. Don't change it in newsfeed, cos newsfeed's tables are more complicated and you can broke it easy.
