BuddyPress is not letting me edit the author details / name for comments

    Hello!

    I am moving a blog over to WordPress, which includes moving the discussion comments which follow blog posts.

    When doing this I was really pleased that WP allowed admin to create comments, and also to edit the author details of each comment – so you could re-create a blog post + conversation from another site.

    For some reason this function has ceased to work and all of my custom author names for comments have reverted back to the admin name.

    I changed my theme back to WP 2014 and deactivated all plugins. Turns out that BuddyPress is the culprit which is inhibiting this function.

    Can someone help me solve this mystery!? How can I get this functionality back and keep BuddyPress?
