phpBB import username issue

  • Bryan Eggers


    I imported a phpBB database with about 2500 users and over 100,000 posts (it took about 90 minutes).  What I noticed is that there were two username created for each phpBB member, for example Chewy and imported_Chewy.  I thought about just deleting all the “imported_” names until I realized that all the references on the board are to those names and not the original names. What to do?

    I also forgot to mention that the email associated with the account also has the imported_ prefix.

    This is using the Buddypress 1.7 beta and BBpress 2.2.4. Thanks!

    This is by design and is expected behaviour.

    If you do an import and the username already exist or they were imported from a previous import the user will be given a username with the prefix `’imported_’` as you outlined above.
