bbPress Topic to Post Converter

    @xarcell

    I’m new to WordPress, and I have installed buddypress, which I understand installs bbpress.

    Is there a way to promote promote a topic to a blog post, and vice versa?

    Thanks.

    Edit: I changed the topic title and moved it to the plugins forum. Cheers, Netweb

    There is not a default way to promote a topic into a post, that I know of anyway.

    You will probably be looking for a plugin to do that.

    Indeed this awesome plugin does exist by @jmdodd

    bbPress Topic to Post Converter
    Add “Convert to Post” action for forum moderators.

    I can’t get this to work. I’ve googled but I don’t see much for alternatives.

    Has bbpress already implemented this or is there nothing out there besides this?

    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

    Is this plugin working for anyone? where is the option to convert the topic to a post? thanks. I just don’t see the option but I may be overlooking it.

    A quick look at the source code…

    It should be convert on the topic admin links where you see edit,close,stick,merge,trash,spam etc

    Bummer, not seeing that! Thanks for the response.

    Going to try with another user account because there were some weird user role issues with my forum until recently when I installed User Role Editor to fix the issue.

    EDIT: none of my keymasters can see that button. Going to try to disable a few other plugins but everything is the latest version.

    EDIT 2: still no. Has this plugin broken for anyone else or does it work for wp 3.8+ and bbpress 2.5+?

    Update – tried this with twenty fourteen and also tried it on a local installation – and neither worked. I think this plugins is dead.

    I just installed it to take a closer look and it does appear to be broken :(

    I do see the ‘Convert to topic’ for the blog posts though, so half works ;)

    I’ll also keep an eye on https://github.com/jmdodd/bbpress-topic-post-converter/issues/1

    Just bumping this up in case any developer wants to take a stab at forking this one!

    Another bump because I really need this!

    I ended up tweeting the developer months ago, but she just favoriting my tweet. Nothing new development-wise that I can see.

    Bummer. :(
