  • Merging Users

    Hi guys
    I have converted mybb to vbulleting 3.8.1 and everything went well except with the admin, I got an imported_admin, I did a user merge and ran the user recount but I still get the Imported_admin on their posts.
    Any ideas

    Thanks
    Graham

        That that user is either misnamed or not merged. Is there another Admin user?

          Hi
          There is one admin on VB and there was one admin on mybb both with the same name and same email address

            Sorry I don't understand that answer. I was referring to vB only. That user is either misnamed or not merged. Is there another Admin user?

                Maybe you did the merge the wrong way round and merged admin into imported_admin. If that is the case, rename imported_admin to admin the run the counter updates again. To edit a user go to

                AdminCP > Users > Search For Users

                Enter the username of the user that you wish to edit and click find. Click Edit next to the appropriate result if multiple results are found.

                Make and changes as desired and click save.

                  I ran across that issue,

                  Do a search on both the names in the 'members area' to see what it says of these 'Admin' members.
                  It may clue you in on what going on your two accounts..
                  If they merged, or you still have two, what ever.

                  I found with myself that I did not merge, due to my setting in the config.php when installing. I set the permission to prevent any changes to user 1, which is the VB Admin.

                  Not sure if this would help, its just what i ran into.
