First installation of the app.

Take a look in your core_members table to see if a couple of columns for this resource is still there. If so, drop them. It seems the uninstall didn’t remove them.

Was that the issue? If no, send a PM with ACP access so I can take a look.

As mentioned in the first post I fixed it by uninstalling the app again after the initial failed installation. It always worked the second time around. So there is nothing for me to investigate anymore. I was just telling you in case you want to have a look at the problem and maybe avoid it for other customers.

Found a MAJOR issue with this and downloads app.

When a contributor is allowed to delete their account they become a guest.  Thus guests to your site become owners of paid files and can download them for FREE!!!!

Please help!! My users figured this out and I am hemorrhaging lost sales.

  1. User Tom contributes paid file
  2. User Tom deletes account
  3. User Tom becomes Guest
  4. Any Guest on Earth can download paid files for FREE

@SJ77, made a couple of tests.

- Using DELETE MY ACCOUNT app to delete a member:


- DELETE MY ACCOUNT app uninstalled and deleting a member via Admin CP:


Both has the same behaviour, as told above... all comes down to the category permission: you allow guest to download files.


It seems a Downloads bug to me because even with the group setting Can download paid files without paying? disabled:


they can download a paid file without pay for it. I would report it as a bug.

Thanks for the quick feedback, I will check on this

YEP, I have this set correctly. I have had it set correctly all along.

Guest are still able to download the files because OWNERSHIP is transferred to them. Guest = Owner and has permission to download.

Please help.

EDIT: I see, you are saying it's a bug with IPB?

The account deletion itself is handled by the framework and has exactly the same behaviour when you delete an account on ACP. I won't change that.

Does this means that we can choose between keeping the username or anonymizing member's content, as when we delete a member from AdminCP?
