    Wordpress Users to Umbraco Members

    Im currently moving a wordpress-page to UAAS. We have 5329 users who have written at least one comment.

    Has anyone tryed importing the passwords of users from wordpress into Umbraco. The wordpress database saves only the hash (of course).

    So I tryed something like this:

    newMember.RawPasswordValue = pwHash;

    But the passwords don't match. I can't login. So probaply the hash is calculated diffrently? Is there a workarround?

    You won't be able to do that, the hashing algorithm in Umbraco is different from the one in Wordpress. If there's a .NET version of their Portable PHP password hashing framework available you could try writing a custom membership provider for it but the easiest would be to reset everybody's passwords and send them a link so they can set a new password.

    The other thing you could attempt (again, if there's a .NET version of Portable PHP password hashing framework):

    • Store all their old passwords in a separate table
    • When someone logs in, validate the old password
    • If that password is correct, you now have their clear text password in memory so you can use it to set the password on the Umbraco member (memberService.SetPassword)

    This would of course be the least intrusive for your users but requires some effort.
