Re: Importing data from existing database to buddypress
thanks for answering me on your site… I\’ll move my issues to this thread
while the \”Full Name\” field cannot be changed, I was able to change it by duplicating the url to change a different field…
when you edit any of the xprofile fields, the url shows somwthing like this:
i just changed the \”2\” to a \”1\” and hit refresh…that allowed me to change the \”Full Name\” field to \”first name\”
my install is very customized, so I simpley can\’t \”roll back\” to a fresh install…
I will try changing the profile name back to \”Full Name\” and see if that works….
(more to follow)
Well that would be bit difficult but not impossible because we have about 2200 users to be imported from old database. I also need to import their other profile data. Is this possible?
it doesnt look like you can add any additional information currently, however this plugin isn\’t super-complex, so you could probably add the functionality to add more user data by adjusting the PHP code (not sure how though)
you may also be able to export your SQL file in a | \”pipe\” delimited fashion
something like this:
SELECT * FROM TABLE
ORDER BY ID INTO OUTFILE \’out.file\’
FIELDS TERMINATED BY \’|\’;
I dont know much about this, but google it and Im sure you\’ll find something
