#2375 closed enhancement (fixed)

Drupal Forum Import Template

Reported by: netweb's profile netweb Owned by: netweb's profile netweb
Milestone: 2.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: trunk
Component: API - Importers Keywords: has-patch needs-testing


Introduce Forum Importer template for use with importing from Drupal v7.xx (Tested on v7.22)

Big hat tip to @vogelsang for doing 99% of the database heavy lifting

User passwords are NOT converted when importing existing Drupal users, during the import you will see the following error which can be ignored though your users will have to reset their passwords manually with WordPress or request a password reset.

Notice: Undefined variable: user_pass in /home/ntwb/public_html/ on line 1297

With some luck in the future I can dive into some MD5 password hashing to get this part working ;)
