Right, thanks Symm2112 for the explanation. I am just starting back up learning about Buddypress and forgot the distinction. My install had been sitting dormant, but I’m on the move getting ready to convert everything over on my site.
I will follow both your, r-a-y and windhamdavid’s instructions and see what I can come up with. The plugin method should be pretty easy to parse out the date ranges and import.
