Re: BP Avatars in bbPress
The above scenario matches what’s going on exactly.
1) You can use bp’s group forums because Sam’s password wasn’t changed. It’s coming from wp meta and it matches the utility user password which wasn’t changed either. bp can talk to bbpress.
2) The import fails because my password is trashed. It sends the blank password over to bp which gets checked with Sam’s password and it fails.
Both of us, Sam and I, were too lazy to figure out how to change the actual user’s password instead of just storing it in meta data. Funny thing is I have a ticket in bp trac that complains about the utility username and password being stored in meta data. (sigh)
