After import users locked out

    So I did a test import from SMF - VB3 - Xen. The password script was buggy so users need to reset. Even after they reset their passwords all of them get:
    You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action.
    I'm looking through all the permissions but that system is pretty poorly laid out so I'm hoping someone has had a similar issue and can save me a ton of time in finding this issue. Thanks.

    Note that ImpEx doesn't preserve group permissions during an import but XenForo does. So your users will have no permissions when they are imported to vB and that will carry over to XenForo. You should review the permissions of all imported groups. Or you can simply delete the imported groups which will move all of those users into the default Registered group which already has appropriate permissions.

    In what way?

    I can't say I've ever had a problem with the permissions and find it a lot easier to use than other software.
    I myself did a double import from phpBB to vB to XF and had no problems at all in configuring everything correctly.

    I presume you've already read the relevant sections of the help manual?

    Thanks for this. So best way to do it would be to just delete all the usergroups in vB so everyone is in 1 then just rebuild completely?

    Yes. That's what I would do.

    You can delete the imported groups in vB before importing to XenForo. Or you can delete the groups in XenForo following the final import.
