XF 1.2 User showing up as guest


Well-known member
I had my board imported from SMF, thanks to Jake Bunce. Anyway, I have this user who shows up as "Guest," but he's marked as valid on the back end. Not banned, not anything. Any idea of how to resolve this?

Are you comfortable running database queries, e.g. in PHP My Admin?

This should in theory return user_id as 25 but as he's showing as a guest, I'm guessing it won't.

SELECT user_id FROM xf_post WHERE post_id = 235737
