  • Strange user problem lost 80,000 members

    Right this might be too late but i upgraded from a smf over a year and a half ago... everything went well or so i thought.

    only recently i noticed i only had 20,000 members but remembered having 85,000 in 2006 so i knew this was wrong.

    so i checked the waybackwhen archives and it looks like not all of them transfered with the forum.

    i still have the old smf DB is there any way to convert the user info and add it to my current forum.

    long shot i know but it was worth asking

    I believe the only way you could do that would be to remove all the users in the SMF database you do not want to import first, then do a new import of just the users.

    Note: There was a reason those users did not import the first time, probably faulty data. For instance if those users did not have a email address then they will not import. It's entirely possible they will not import the second time either.

      might set up a test copy forum and see if i can work out who to delete and give that a try

      just wanted to know if it would work so thanks for the reply steve confirming it
