Hi,

I am converting 2 forums to 1 IPB install. I have ran though some test conversions and seem to be having problems with Users Merging.

Both forums I own have a lot of the same members, but they don't always merge and I end up with 2 users. E.g Username and Username12345675

I'm assuming merges work off of email addresses? If so, any way I can change this to merge on username?

There is no automatic merge for users, the users are converted with another display name and then you must merge them yourself after the conversion.



EDIT: You could edit the code and have it skip members with the same username using the old member ID but that's not something we support.

In that case, I'll have a lot of manual merging to do. I would have expected an option on how to deal with duplicate users.
