    Hi there,

    I have a phpBB forum (3.0.10) and i wonder if its possible to move users to wordpress.
    I want users to login to wordpress with their phpBB username and password.
    For now i use wp3all and users login via phpBB with linked option of wp3all

    Thank you in advance

    Yes, You could also activate the plugin as not users linked for the scope,
    and yes transfer users into WP from phpBB, also 3.0.10 or any other version.
    But you can’t integrate after a version 3.0.10, it need to be almost > 3.1.0.

    Except this, remember that transfers as are coded now, when you transfer users assume this behavior:
    if you are transferring 500 users x time and while transferring, the process (that you’ll see on log of same page) report that a duplicated email exist for another username or that an username already exists (duplicated records) and suppose it happen at record 250, subsequent 250 users of these 500 aren’t transferred.
    So you’ll need fix these reported problem on logs (duplicated emails or usernames) and repeat the transfer from the start, or these users will result not transferred.

    It has been done in this way to avoid duplicated usernames and email duplicated, but will be improved soon.

    No! this is not possible at moment, because since the plugin aim to integrate phpBB this is little out of his mission, but why not, i will consider to add the feature, increasing tools like this, so the plugin can be used as switzerland knife for this kind of things. But in the while, check this:
