The ‘dev’ branch of Spanish is at 100% translated so give that a try.
Can you add a link to your sirte and a specific example topic/reply so I can take a closer look at what is happening here.
I am not seeing this on your site now.
I presume you fixed it by changing the parent forums type to ‘category’ so your issue is now fixed?
The ‘unrestricted HTML’ should typically only be seen by yourself the bbPress ‘keymaster’, standard users will not be able to post ‘unrestricted HTML’.
It is the only one I know of, if you have issues with the plugin open an issue on the GitHub project issues section https://github.com/jmdodd/bbpress-topic-post-converter/issues
It is indeed, just follow the instructions via the docs
Currently the phpBB import script only supports phpBB v3
You could upgrade phpBB v2 to phpBB v3 and then import to bbPress.
You will still have issues with user passwords though and each user would need there password manually changed. This is due to different password algorithms between phpBB v2 & v3.
It looks like that is based on ‘Simple Machines Forum’ and we currently do not have a conversion script for that.
1. can more than 110 000 users be imported
This should not be a problem.
2. My website runs a specific version of phpbb SEO for allowing permalinks for every forum – will this be imported ? (so that there is not a lot of redirect)
No, these will NOT be imported and you will need to manually set your permalinks and make some redirects using .htaccess
3. My website stores custom profile fields for every user (more than just ICQ, but also custom ones). How could I have the same kind of functionalities using bbpress ?
Currently when importing from phpBB we are importing and storing the default phpBB user fields as outlined here. You could modify the import script to include any of your custom user profile fields so they also get stored in
After that you would need to find a WordPress plugin that supports extended user profile fields to utilize that data. I am not sure of any specific plugin that can really do that out of the box with bbPress at the moment but at least you ‘would’ have all of your users advanced profile data stored.
4. What about performance – will it be better than phpbb. I know bbpress is very powerful for small forums, but I have no idea regarding huge ones. Can wp caching plugins work for bbpress as well ?
There are some large sites running bbPress and I would suggest you setup a test site to see how it works for yourself personally.
As to caching it appears that ‘WP Super Cache’and ‘W3 Total Cache’ do not work well with bbPress as discussed in this topic though there is ‘Lite Cache’ which appears to work with bbPress as per this topic.
5. Is the entire UI translated in French – it doesn’t seem to me, but maybe I’m wrong.
The current status of the French translation is at 11% translated with 879 strings untranslated though 734 of those strings have been translated and are waiting for the fr_FR translation validator to validate the translations.
6. Can I use any plugins writter for wp for bbpress ?
I am not sure what you mean for this question
Any more questions please ask away…
Can you please create a ticket in trac and we can test this and find a fix:
The strings you mention from what I can see are all currently able to be translated.
Take a look at this to get started with bbPress Translation files
Apologies for the late reply but a severe case of the flu has kept me from thinking
Firstly @clicknathan the bbconverter plugin has not been updated in a long time and is what the actual included converter with bbPress 2.x is based upon and indeed if you keep importing on top of imports you are going to have issues.
@trisham I cannot come up with a specific SQL query for you to delete the duplicates, ideally what you want to do is open phpMyAdmin and find the post ID’s of your imports.
i.e. Find the ‘first’ and ‘last’ post ID from your first import and then find the ‘first’ and ‘last’ post ID from your second import.
`SELECT * FROM ‘wp_posts’ WHERE ‘post_type’ LIKE ‘forum’`
`SELECT * FROM ‘wp_posts’ WHERE ‘post_type’ LIKE ‘topic’`
`SELECT * FROM ‘wp_posts’ WHERE ‘post_type’ LIKE ‘reply’`
The above queries you should see you started to see the post ‘ID’ for the duplicates and I would expect to find them in a numerical order by post ‘ID’ and this starts to build you a range of post ‘ID’ that you will want to delete.
You may find that the range of post ID’s are eg. 2650 – 5299 that are the duplicates that you need to remove and this SQL query highlights those posts `SELECT * FROM ‘wp_posts’ WHERE ID BETWEEN 2650 AND 5299 ` and this query `SELECT * FROM ‘wp_postmeta’ WHERE post_id BETWEEN 2650 AND 5299 ` finds the same posts in `wp_postmeta`
Once you have confirmed the post ID’s for your duplicates with the queries above and you are confident you have the correct ID’s you grab those SQL statements eg. `SELECT * FROM ‘wp_posts’ WHERE ID BETWEEN 2650 AND 5299 ` and `SELECT * FROM ‘wp_postmeta’ WHERE post_id BETWEEN 2650 AND 5299 ` and change the `SELECT * ` to `DELETE` for both of those queries to remove the posts from `wp_posts` & `wp_postmeta` tables.
I hope this makes some kind of sense and if you have any questions please ask away.
We are happy to help troubleshoot the issue with you it’s just difficult when ‘we’ can’t see what you are referring to.
Some screenshots and a link to your site would be quite helpful.
@ianhaycox Excellent news, glad you are now on the case
These two comments should help get you going:
The actual export file filename.xml is just a structured flat file format so you should be able to have a look inside that and confirm if the actual ‘topics’ are included in the file itself.
This would make sure you know that the export is correctly exporting everything you expect and then if that is correct then start diagnosing why the topics are not importing.
No, bbPress does NOT use comments for replies, bbPress replies, topics and forums use WordPress Custom Post Types.
Cool… Fix is in Also updated http://codex.bbpress.org/bbpress-user-roles-and-capabilities/
Excellent, glad we have some progress, now to hope that bbPress Moderation plugin will get an update soon.
p.s. I also changed this topic title to include bbPress Moderation Plugin.
Are you using the latest bbPress 2.3?
What version of vBulletin are you using? I have only tested vBulletin 4.x
Here is the list of known issues with vBulletin http://codex.bbpress.org/import-forums/vBulletin/
This is by design in that when a topic/reply is sent to the ‘trash’ that is where it is sent, it is not permanently deleted and only ‘Keymaster’ can permanently delete items from the trash.
