duplicate account after vanilla 1 to 2 upgrade.

edited November 2009 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Not really a bug more of a user mistake. When upgrading vanilla 1 to 2 I created an admin account and then when in imported the vanilla 1 accounts the same one came over now there are duplicate accounts is there anyway to get rid of the newer account?

    Is there any way to manually delete the newer account and leave the older account or will it delete both accounts. I imagine they both have some sort of unique identifier.

    @dejitaru There isn't a delete user mechanism in the core. Maybe rename one of the accounts and remove its admin status? If you can manually edit your database I could walk you deleting the user, but hopefully it isn't hurting anything to just leave it there for now.

    Also, the latest importer prevents this from happening.

    awesome was able to rename the newest account now I have all of my imported whispers/conversations back.Dont know why I didnt think of that. Thanks @Lincoln much appreciated. No need to delete the account now that its renamed everything is cool and back to normal. <3 Vanilla 2 thus far.
