    hi all!

    i have strange bug

    1. i converted phpBB to bbpress with users – all was fine

    2. but – users cant log in with old phpBB passwords

    3. sou i found, that:

    $converter = bbp_new_converter( $row->meta_value );
    var_dump($converter);

    says, that it can’t connect to database;

    var_dump($wpdb) shows correct passwords

    but bbp_new_converter object cant connect to database …

    ["error"]=> object(WP_Error)#1764 (2) { ["errors"]=> array(1) { ["db_connect_fail"]

    anyone can help ???

    bb-converter.php

    this is wrong, it only works from admin, cause when user log in, $_POST array will not have information about DB:

    $this->opdb = new wpdb( $_POST['_bbp_converter_db_user'], $_POST['_bbp_converter_db_pass'], $_POST['_bbp_converter_db_name'], $_POST['_bbp_converter_db_server'] );
    $this->opdb->prefix = $_POST['_bbp_converter_db_prefix'];

    Thanks, this has now been fixed for the next release 2.1.3

    it must be fixed, but it seems it was not the problem, why old phpBB users cant log in with old passwords

    with FRESH install all was fine …
