  • Passwords resetted after migration,question regarding this..

    Hi Friends,
    I recently used Impex to migrate my Fireboard forum to Vbulletin 3.6.8 path 2 forum. As expected, all the user passwords have been resetted and i have to let my 10,000 users know that they have to reset their passwords now

    I want to make this process as easy as possible for them so that i don't lose too many users. The vbulletin manual explains to send the users an email of this form:
    Hello $username,
    We have recently moved our forum to vBulletin, part of moving to this amazing software is that you are required to reset your password, if you follow this link and enter your email address you will be emailed directions to resetting your password.$email
    Webmaster of
    But i dont understand how would the $username and $email fields be automatically replaced with the user's username and email ???

    Is there any example as to how people do it?

    Please help.

    vB replaces those with the correct values.

        Just put $username, the vBulletin forums will do the rest, they will receive the email saying their username don't worry

          Yes, you need to send the email through your admin panel. It's an admin option - mass email users.
