    Hi,

    I am quite new to WordPress and definitely new to forums. I am trying to export a forum using SMF on one site and importing into bbPress on another site within WordPress. How do I go about doing this?

    Thanks.

  • Is your SMF database on the same database server that your WordPress instalation is setup with?

    If not your webhost should have some docs on how to export/backup your database.

    Then follow the similar docs on your new webhost to import the database if needed.

    Then follow the basic steps outlined here http://codex.bbpress.org/import-forums/

    There are also a couple of topics here on bbPress.org relating to SMF that you should be able to find pretty quickly.

    I exported the database from the old host and imported into the new host I then tried importing the forum in WordPress using the bbPress plug-in. No forum seems to be created.

    Am I missing a step?
