New Users get Random ‘Name’ in User Data?

  • sdeeds


    Hey, first post here,
    I’m using a WordPress install with MemberPress to manage registrations.

    I then am using bbPress for a forum, and BuddyPress for Profiles, Messaging, etc.

    When a new user registers, a very peculiar thing happens.

    The WP Username and the BuddyPress name, stored in the wp_bp_xprofile_data do not match.
    In some cases, this also becomes imported_{username}.

    In the case where it the BuddyPress name becomes imported_{username} it seems to be associated with bbPress, in this file /plugins/bbpress/includes/admin/converter.php, starting on line 970.

    However, I can’t seem to track down where seemingly random usernames are coming from, and WHY…

    In the example image, if I were to search the database for bobbytaylor5971 the only instance of that string is in the one row in wp_bp_xprofile_data. Correct user_id, wrong value.

    I’ve been trying to figure this out for months, and so far, we’ve just been manually updating each new registered user.

    Any thoughts on this issue?

    Thanks for the help.
