We're moving

Post by kojote » Tue Nov 13, 2018 10:53 am

Hi everyone.

I'm working on writing a migration from our beloved *cough* phpBB to a new Discourse based Discussion Board.

So in the next days I'll going to set a Stop to new posts and let you all know where your account moved and how to reset your Password (which is a good security training btw)

Quick question, what if we already created an account on the new platform?

I created a test thread on the new platform
I think it will be deleted.
The worst which could happen is that you have to reset your password.

Since I'm writing the importer myself thx for the hints ;) I'll do a quick fetch to the API of the Discourse and check if someone already exists and than will "try" to map the UserID for the Posts.
