Has anyone found a working solution to this? I’m considering migrating my WordPress plugin support from comments on a WP post / page onto a bbPress forum (so the history is searchable). If such a thing doesn’t exist, I’d need to create it, because the history is what’s really valuable.
I had a quick look at the basic format and it doesn’t look all that complicated. Each forum, topic, or reply becomes a new entry in wp_posts with some extra metadata stored in wp_postmeta for things like the commenter’s name, email, url, and IP. I reckon the core logic would be pretty straightforward, my biggest question is how to kick off the import process.
Anyone with development experience interested in collaborating? Or got any existing code to share?
