Deleting user and preserving the pages (2 posts)

    I recently run into a problem - I deleted a user and since there was number zero in the Posts column on /wp-admin/users.php I thought that he has no posts or pages. So I didn't selected "Attribute all posts and links to some other user" option.

    Later I discovered that there are several pages missing on my site. So what's the deal with the pages? Posts column on /wp-admin/users.php is simply showing just the number of the posts, what about pages? This can lead to some serious confision and troubles.

    Please help, thanks!

    This is too late for you, but I have created a pseudo-user called "deleted user" for just this purpose. If I need to delete someone, I'll attribute all his stuff to that user.
    N.B: I'd have expected this to be an intrinsic function of a blog, but the workaround was simple.
