User migration should occur before content migration

Reported by dleffler | March 15th, 2011 @ 01:59 PM | in Beta 1

May only require moving user migration up in the menu higher, but user migration should occur before content migration. This would solve some migration problems and also allow better migration of content from multiple users (blog, news, etc...) Probably could eventually be solved by making the migration tasks into a wizard, but not for beta 1. If it would be desirable to import permissions (in the future), then User migration should probably come first (prior to pages and files).

    If the content is migrated first, before the users, the attributions would be blank, but wouldn't they fall in to place after users are imported?

    I could rewrite it like that...but the users are imported and added, NOT with the same user id. Could do that, but it implies you can only do it with a clean user table (except for admin #1).My initial thinking was to "add" users to the new site and not having to delete existing ones.

    Ah, yes, I see. If there's no good way to keep the ID's then certainly should migrate the content first, and potentially put some instruction at the top of the content migration form that they should migrate users first if they haven't already.

    Migration now keeps user & group id#'s intact
