    We have a site that we are converting to buddypress (from standard WP Install). We have over 1K users, most of which have published posts.

    Non of these old posts are showing up on the new buddypress profiles. How do we import all of those show they show up on our users buddypress profile pages?

    Hi @nkeatign

    BuddyPress ‘members’ and WordPress ‘authors’ share the same ID, therefore are the same entity. A post that belongs to WordPress author with ID 286 belongs to a BuddyPress member with ID 286 (because, again, they’re the same). If something isn’t displaying as you’d expect, then it’s likely to be a theme issue.

    Which theme are you using?

    @henrywright – Reset to twenty thirteen so standard theme.

    Im looking to include old posts on users profiles — buddypress only shows updates (including new posts) since the buddypress plugin was installed/activated.

    I think I need a way to create activity stream events for those old posts, as our users have hundreds of posts that are now not showing when someone visit their buddypress profile page…

    Any ideas on this? Legacy wordpress posts simply do not show up buddypress activity streams.

    i have the buddypress profile showing all new posts since the time buddypress was installed, but how might i add buddypress activity records for every users old posts?

    This is basically a really old version of what I need.. its not working but same exact idea (except we dont have comments, only posts). About 1000 posts total from 1000 different users

    As you already stated, BP activities are running once BP is installed. Anything done before is not considered as an activity. WP has no activity table like BP.

    Have you tried the BP repair tool ? It can recalculate posts to users and such kind of things. Give a try and see if you got older posts prior to BP in user activities. Who knows ?

    I’m really unsure because i never tested such a situation. But it would cost nothing to try if you have a lot of archieves. (it’s not my case) 😉

    any ideas on this? There has got to be a way to create activity records for old/imported content…
