Assign topics to another user?

  • Anointed


    I just imported my vbulletin forums into bbPress.

    I want to take all the topics and replies that were added to vbullletin(now bbpress) under my old username and merge those topics and replies to my current username.

    Is there a tool to do this, or do I need to do a direct mysql query by hand?

  • You can just delete the user and assign all those topics & replies to another user.

    eg. If your vBulletin username was ‘Anointed’ and that username is the same username you setup for WordPress during the import, bbPress would have created a username ‘Imported_Anointed’ to avoid duplicates etc.

    Go to the WordPress Admin -> Users and find the username ‘Imported_Anointed’ and click ‘delete’, the next screen will show you a copuple of options to either delete the user and all posts OR to ‘Attribute all posts and links to’ another username, simply select your ‘Anointed’ username from the dropdown list and all topics and replies will now be merged with your primary WordPress username ‘Anointed’



    I have the same Problem. So I have to do this with 1000 Users?
