  • Merge Users -- makes future import impossible?

    I merged the Admin account with the "imported_Admin" account and now I need to reimport everything -- PM's, threads, posts.

    I got the forum and permissions all setup perfectly, but need to reimport everything that has changed in the last 2 weeks since I first ran ImpEx.

    However this seems impossible. Now all posts by Admin show no username and "n/a". PMs and everything else does not work.

    I even tried the extraordinary step:

    Backup Forum
    Clear out all Imported Users
    Clear out all Users
    Reimport Users
    Backup the rows of the "user" table that say "imported_Admin".
    Restore Backup
    Restore "imported_Admin" row of table.

    Even after I did that, the "imported_Admin" user account is broken.

    So do I have to start from scratch with a complete reimport?
