After import of phpBB, sending notifications to users on very old replies
I had an old WP site that came back to life. It was running phpBB, and I successfully imported everything to bbPress. In the new site, we are also using BuddyPress. Old users are reporting that they are now getting email notifications on replies from forum posts that are many years old.
After first posting this to the bbPress support forums, I kept digging. The email notifications came from BuddyPress. I initially thought it was bbPress, since it was linked to a forum reply. But apparently, after the old users logged into the new site as themselves again, BuddyPress grabbed the forum replies (even though really old) and added them to the user’s activity stream. The activity stream sees it as a new mention to another member, and that triggered the email notification.
Ideas and guidance are appreciated.
