Does the XenForo to Discourse Converter also imports password?

(Dan) #1

What is the complete list of data it will retain or import from XenForo?

It does not import passwords.

Here’s what it pulls from the user field. You can have a look a the code here. Even if you are not a programmer, you might be able to glean what is imported by looking at the names of the fields. For example:

       "SELECT user_id id, username, email, custom_title title, register_date created_at,
                last_activity last_visit_time, user_group_id, is_moderator, is_admin, is_staff

lets you see what gets pulled out of the XenForo database.

You might check out this thread, which describes a migrate-password plugin and how to write (or modify) an importer to migrate the passwords.

If you’d like someone to modify the XenFro importer, you can make an offer in the #marketplace.

How about the Attachments?
and redirecting old XenForo urls?

(Jay Pfaffman) #5

I don’t think it does attachments or redirects.

That’s very sad :-(.

It shouldn’t be too difficult to solve that problem. This is your opportunity to make the world a better place! :smile:
