Link User to Discussion
Last question for this whole thing, I hope!!
I have successfully ported over users -- all of them!. I am using SSO, so I ported over the foreignuserkey. Using a bunch of test people, everybody was successfully able to sign in via WP without any issue at all. Those who are supposed to be admins and mods have those privileges and everybody else is a member.
I also have successfully ported over most of the forums. That is working out fine, for the most part. Topics are tied with replies and everything has the right date, the comments show up in the right order even! Woohoo.
BUT -- it gives no username attached to anything. I took great pains when I did this whole thing that I would keep the WP user # intact, so that they could link. And when I ported over, say, the User with # 4456, they show up as 4456 after logging in and that works great. And they can reply to an existing post and their name shows up perfectly. But any old ones.... nope... just empty.
It's annoying, especially since a few years ago I made the leap out of phpbb (so glad I did that) and I also lost usernames to posts... and people still remind me of that occasionally..
