Activating existing user accounts in BP
I’m new to Buddypress and have been scouring the forums trying to find the answer to the first of many questions, but to no avail:
How can I activate existing user accounts so that they show up as members of my community? Or more to the point, how can I manage user profiles as SuperAdmin, thru the backoffice?
I have a site that was classic WordPress with about 20 contributors. I want to implement MS+BP, but my tests are still wonky. On the members page I show up, and it seems to recognize that there are 22 members altogether, but they will not show up in the list and are not searchable. Argh! They do show up as Authors thru blog posts, and I can click on their names to bring me to their profile page. But they seem to be considered “inactive” or something like that.
These existing users would not have filled out the mandatory BP profile info like Name, and additional fields that I’ve added (or want to add).
Am having a hard time understanding this relationship between Member profiles and User profiles. Suggestions? Tips? Plugins? Help?!
