I have an old site with a HUGE forum (almost 400,000 topics) in bbPress 1.1. I’m importing it into 2.2.4. I’m doing this on a site that has been running the bbPress integration plugin, which means that (in theory, anyway) the old 1.1 site and the new WP site I’m importing into already have the same users.
So here’s the problem: after importing the forum, all of the posts on the new forum have the same author – me. So the import script apparently didn’t import the authors.
I also noticed that after the import, the forums/user/## doesn’t show the information that is stored in the user’s profile (eg avatar, website, etc). This is all stored in wp_usermeta in the integration plugin.
I’ve also also noticed that if I leave the integration plugin active while doing the import, the new forums don’t appear to work (eg, I go to /forums/ and it says there are no forums)
