Forum import. After users are done, what links them to the topics/replies?
I’m wondering how topics and replies get liked to users during import. Is it simply by ID, or by email?
I.e you import 10,000 users. This completes. Then it moves on to topics, importing them and assigning them to the appropriate user. Does it take the user ID from the old forum software and compare to that stored for the imported user, or does it match via email address (which should be unique of course).
I ask this because I’m considering importing topics/replies from 4 external forums in to a single bbpress install. There will really be no way to match up which topic/reply should be assigned to which user via ID, but it would work if matching via email.
Thanks in advance!
