Vanilla 2.6 is here! It includes security fixes and requires PHP 7.0. We have therefore ALSO released Vanilla 2.5.2 with security patches if you are still on PHP 5.6 to give you additional time to upgrade.
Please upgrade to 2.3 here. The 2.2 and earlier branches are no longer being updated.

Importing SMF2 - No roles assigned

This discussion is related to the Vanilla Porter addon.

Hi there

Whenever I import from my SMF2 installation, it works without issue, all of the users are there, their passwords work, the roles come across...but no user is assigned a role.

Am I doing something wrong?

Many thanks

  • I don't know if you are doing something wrong or if program is doing something wrong.

    but you can easily assign roles via phpmyadmin in the usertole table. Each userid has a roleid number that matches a roleid in the role table and permissions table.

    Conversions frequently don't match the standard roles and numbers and its probably worth it matching them in the long run, if you have the time

    there are other discussions relating to roles and permissions that can give you insights.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
