  • Removing "imported_" before Usernames

    Hello, I just successfully imported my phpbb3 forum and everything went fine, but before each user that registered on the new forum and was also registered on the old forum, a "imported_" appears before their name.

    What would I do, to fix this? And how would I fix an "imported_" for me, the admin? I tried to rename it to my current name by just removing the imported_ but it said the name was already in use. Would I have to sign up with a different name than the original forum, or could I just remove it?

    Also, another thing I noticed was that after I imported my phpbb3 Beta Forum everything seemed to be fine except the users. At the bottom of the page, it says that there are 50 Users, the same amount of members at the previous forum. When I view the Members page, it shows only my profile, and the other 49 are not there. They cannot register with their old profile info either.

    Must I use ImpEx again to import the modules, or is something more complicated?

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    Sorry If its been posted already. I've looked around and havent seen much covering it.

    This happens when the imported user has the same name as an existing user. You can manually merge these users here:

    Admin CP -> Users -> Merge Users

      Is this safe when the user is an admin\mod?

        If you first make sure both members are in the same usergroups, yes.

          dekard, there are 50 users that are bots on phpBB 3. So I think Impex also imported the bots.
