I was surprised to discover this. I needed them to be the same as on my old system as I also need to import subscriptions into CBSubs. Is this by design? Or was there possibly some problem with my import?

Thank you.

The only way to keep the userid if you are moving from Joomla 1.5 to 2.x is to use the one of the upgrade components. By design, CBJUICE adds new users on to the end of the existing set. That is the only safe way to do it.

Right. But when importing users into an empty database, there's no danger. I would've loved to have the option of maintaining the user_ids from my old membership system.
