phpbb3 -> bbpress -> wordpress user database

  • Hi,

    I’m using phpbb3 right now but want to move to bbpress. So I installed bbpress on my server and was able to import all the posts and users from the phpbb3 to the new bbpress forum. Everything worked great. But now I would like to integreate the wordpress user database with the bbpress database. When I’m using this build in integration method, all the users I transfered from phpbb3 to bbpress disapear…

    does anyone know how to fix that or is the bbpress user databye deleted by integreating it to wordpress?

    Hi Geekaholic,

    you moved the phpbb user to the bbPress user table (e.g. bb_users). The users are still there. After the user integration you must copy the users from bbPress user table to the WordPress user table – and also copy the user_meta information.

    If you had some WordPress users before the transfer form phpbb to bbPress/WordPress – it is possible to merge the users by hand. I do this within the phpMyAdmin.


    Thx, hab das gemacht und es hat funktioniert :)
