You have to delete the one account and then Reattribute User Posts to the other account. Maintenance>Forum Maintenance>Members
No Pm's for support please!

Firstly you have to be ensure to make backup of forum then do the above or do following steps....

GO to Admin Panel ---- > Maintenance---> Forum Maintenance --- > Members... then point to username and type user name which posts you wants to be merged and then type username under attribute posts (where u want to add posts)... then delete the empty user......

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum.
 Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas
