Moving “old” WordPress users to WPMU/Buddypress

  • Profile photo of Vicachu


    Hello everyone!

    I’ve seen similar threads about this issue, but not a single one on my particular problem. As I’ve read and understood, when moving users from a regular WordPress installation, the wp_users and wp_usermeta tables should simply be imported into the WordPress MU/Buddypress-database.

    My problem is not that the users being imported are not shown under activity, but rather that they’re not showing up AT ALL. Instead, my members catalogue gets emptied out, I can’t find a single member with the search function, and my bbPress forum can’t be used by a user when logged in. In short, everything gets messed up, and I have no idea how to solve this. I mean, as from what I’ve read, this should just work.

    Thanks for any help ASAP!

    If you’re moving to WPMU, forget about BuddyPress at the moment. Once you have tested that WPMU is working correctly, then you can install BuddyPress.
