    We had aMember integrated nicely with phpBB, but recently decided to switch from phpBB to bbPress, which is a WordPress forum plugin.

    We imported all users & forum posts from phpBB into WordPress. Then we created a new integration between aMember and the new WordPress installation.

    So essentially, the same exact users are in aMember as are in the installation of WordPress. I'm not sure about the passwords, but I know the user names are the same.

    When logging in as a test user from aMEber to WordPress, the sidebar widget in WordPress indicated the user is logged in, but when trying to perform actions in WordPress, WordPress is stating the user is not logged in.

    Any suggestion on the steps that need to be taken to properly integrate WordPress with aMember in this way? Do we need to re-import users from WordPress into aMember (save our current members)?

    Thanks for any suggestions.
