Am attempting to manually import in mySQL from an old forum script. Not sure how to handle a few fields: Table: xf_user_authenticate Field : data Is there a simple helper function somehere to help convert from unencoded text password to data format that is compatible with login authentication? Read somewhere here that can use an md5 + salt but not sure how to enable in any config so login will work. Also how to generate remember field? Table: xf_node How to assign 'lft" and "rgt" values ?
