XF 1.1 User Passwords

I just went through the process of moving from MyBB 1.6.5 to IPB 3.2 to XenForo 1.1. Somewhere along that line users passwords quit working, however, mine didn't (I'm guessing that's because it auto merged my account with the only one on the test board for each installation). Is there any way to fix this problem? If not, is there any way to mass reset passwords through the database and e-mail the users the new password?

Passwords are preserved from IPB to XF. So the question is, are passwords preserved from MyBB to IPB? Probably not, based on your experience.

Just send out a mass email with this link:


That will allow everyone to reset their passwords.
