Topic author names prefixed with "imported_"

  • OC2PS


    I have found that this plugin imports users AND imports topics, but doesn’t make the connection. So basically it imports users twice – once from user table and another time as authors of something (or nothing).

    The usernames shown as post authors have imported_ prefixed to them.

    So we have

    username, and


    So I tried deleting imported_username using bbpress function of assigning all its topics/replies to username. The operation was successful and now I see username as author of those topics/replies, but one problem lingers: I still don’t see any topics/replies by username if I go to its profile page.

    I can’t go the opposite way and delete username and then change imported_username to username as WordPress doesn’t allow changing usernames.

    P.S. I imported from phpBB 3.0.9
