Imported bbPress users have broken passwords (1 post)

    Hi,
    I just used the bbPress converter to import my bbPress standalone site (bbPress 1.1) to WordPress' (version 3.3.1) bbPress plug-in (version 2.0.2)

    Everything imported fine, except for passwords. I used the "Convert Users" option on the plug-in's config screen, and now I am unable to log-in with users imported from bbPress. If I try to log-in with a bbPress username and password, it recognizes the username, but throws an error "Wrong Password." I looked at the databases, and the encrypted passwords don't match between wp_users and bb_users. I still have the plug-in running (although the readme.txt file says I can turn it off since I imported from bbPress Standalone 1x).

    The documentation indicates that this should be working:

    bbConverter has a special script which will allow your users to maintain their old forum username and password. In a nutshell, when a user signs in for the first time after the forums convert, the script will check their old password, validate it, and then use the WordPress system to generate the identical password for the user in the appropriate place.

    What am I doing wrong?
