WXR importer: Creating new user to import to sucks, should be fixed or removed
|Reported by:||mark-k||Owned by:|
When importing WXR you are prompted to assign a user to which of the existing users the imported content will be assigned, but it is also possible to provide a name of a new user which will be created and the content then will be associated with it.
The new user functionality sucks
- No email or password is required therefor the user for a while is missing data which is assumed to always exist for a user. In the end of the import there is a small notice about updating the user data, but it gets lost in all the output being generated during import
- Processing does not stop if user creation had failed (I used hebrew characters for user name) and the imported content is assigned to the current user. WTF?
