Import a forum and export it to either WordPress posts or bbPress topics
I’m running a (french) WP (3.0.1) site :
There is a (not integrated) bbPress (1.02) forum :
I used to participate a lot in a forum dealing with same kind of topics (hearing issues) : http://www.sos-audition.org (phpbb)
Today one of the admin of SOS-audition.org told me they decided to close their forum in a near future. This is very sad as there is a lot of good informations on this forum. I don’t want it to disappear completely from the web !
These people don’t agree to let me import all their datas because they think it would not be “correct” for users but they are OK for me to import all topics I participated in. In other words, I am allowed to import SOME of their content.
I let more than 2000 posts on this forum those days so you can guess it would be a loooooong task for me to do it all manually.
But as they completely abandon the forum they don’t want to do anything to help me do this. So no way for me to get my hands on their phpbb database
So here is my question :
is there a (quite simple) way to import this content and export it to :
1. either posts on WordPress
2. or topics on bbPress
Any help would be much appreciated !
