We did an import of a vB board to our xf board and have had a couple of problems. First of all there were forums that weren't merged - they had the same names etc. but they just ended up being turned into separate forums with the same name and category names. Also, not all the forums showed up after the import was completed, and we spent ages trying to figure out why. We figured it might just have been a permissions problem but then we got our heads in knots trying to figure out how to set the permissions for all the different usergroups we had after the import (members ended up with access to places they shouldn't have too, which was a problem to figure out as well)...
We came to the conclusion that having so many usergroups was probably unnecessary since access isn't dictated by usergroups, so we decided to get rid of any unnecessary usergroups... but, we didn't realise that deleting a usergroup would delete any member accounts that have those usergroups as primary... so now we've lost a load of user accounts and we really need to get them back.
Is there a way to do that without having to re-do the import all over again? We could really use some help as we're pretty much out of our depth and really confused about how to get access sorted out in the way we need to (there's no way that we can see, of seeing what access each member has, which is really frustrating if you've got a LOT of private forums...)
If any of you can help us out, we'd seriously appreciate it, cos we're all a bit gutted and frustrated and confused about the whole thing lol.
