    I've imported my users from phpbb2 -> phpbb3 -> xf1.2 rc1

    for some reason, many users can't log in with their passwords and if they request a new one, they get a message, that their passwort couldn't be changed?

    Someone knows about this issue?

    If the password format changed from phpBB 2 to 3, then that would be the cause and would be expected.

    However, I don't know of any error messages with that particularly wording - there's a similar one that'd I'd need to confirm you're receiving. It'd likely only going to be hit in edge cases though.

    the message is in the phrase

    and contains the message

    That will only be triggered if there is no password confirmation record or if they didn't have the correct confirmation code (bad email link).

    Can you confirm the issue?

    I ask them to send me the whole conversation and inform you. Thank you.

    FYI, phpBB2 uses md5 passwords.

    If passwords didn't survive your double import then I can probably fix it up for you if you give me access to all 3 databases (if that is the problem).
