Migrate from Ultimate Member to BuddyPress
How can i migrate my users from Ultimate Member to BuddyPress?
I was really get frauded by this Ultimate Member guys claiming their plugin is the Ultimate solution and BuddyPress is a bloated hard to configure ancient relic. I payed for hundreds of dollars for their complete bundle and a bug from their plugin which i discovered very lately killed site (they create a record in wp-options table for every damn user!) And that was eating my server’s 8 GB of ram and them system were forced to kill MySQL for extra ram. This also caused a corrupted database etc..
Anyway i have around 40k users now in Ultimate Member and my license expired so i can’t use Private Messaging (they charge 45$ for just PM!!) so i want to use BuddyPress (which i should have done from the beginining).
So is there a way to migrate to BuddyPress keeping all users?
Please take a backup before doing any changes. Users are there by default in WordPress so if you will remove the ultimate member and its extensions then also users will be there. What needs to be managed is if you have any associated data with UM like activities then they certainly will create the issue because BuddyPress has its own activity table and even table for profile field data and all.
I will suggest to set up a staging site first and then test all these things there. Deactivate UM and it’s extensions and then install BuddyPress and check what’s missing there and if there is an extension available in BuddyPress that can do so.
Haven’t done anything. Just installed BuddyPress and deleted the Ultimate Member. Everything is alright now except BuddyPress Members page doesn’t list old members just the new registered or password reset ones. In admin panel Users i can see all the users though

It’s because BuddyPress shows active members only so as soon as they will login on the site they will be listed. If you want to do it manually then please install User switching plugin and switch to each members account one by one and they will be listed.
