    Can anyone help me with this problem?

    I need play-by-play instructions on importing user info from an already existing BBpress database to a fresh WordPress install. Can anyone help me?

    Thank you so much!

    I call this “reverse integration”.

    Unless there is something I am overlooking, I believe the easiest way to do this is to use phpmyadmin to either rename or export bb_users and bb_usermeta to wp_users and wp_usermeta.

    (you’d have to get rid of the existing wp_users wp_usermeta first of course)

    Then you will need my fix-admin-access plugin to restore access to the WP admin panel since your role will no longer exist. This assumes you as the keymaster are user #1.
