    Introduce Forum Importer template for use with importing from SMF v2.0.x(Tested on v2.0.4)

    http://codex.bbpress.org/import-forums/ & ​​http://codex.bbpress.org/import-forums/smf

    Working: Forums, Topics, Replies, Users & User Passwords
    Partial: Custom BBCode for Topic & Reply Content
    Not Working Yet: Categories

    Attached to bbPress Trac Ticket #2380 is the 1st pass patch for SMF importing into bbPress.

    To test the importer download the latest patch from the link above and copy/ftp the file into the /includes/admin/converters/ folder of your bbPress plugin.

    I hope to get the remaining outstanding items done ASAP.
    (User passwords will be a little trickier and will take a bit more time)

    Any feedback and/or testing that you can provide will help me out tremendously.

    Cheers,

    Stephen :)

    I just did a conversion and all went quite well. @landshark: all external images (linked within posts) are showing up here, so that seems to work.

    I wonder if there is any way to convert/transfer the attachments so that they will work as well?

    Cheers.

    I haven’t seen any particular effective ways to do this yet, I have a few ideas on how to add support to import the attachments into the WordPress media library but it only exists in imagination at this stage, once I get the time to take a look I most certainly will have a crack at it.

    Yeah I’m sure there mus be something unique about my situation that is causing the conversion to choke but I’ve run out of ideas as to how to figure it out. I was hoping for some help but alas, nothing.

    Being completely ignored for 2 weeks is frustrating to say the least.

    @landshark I wouldn’t say you were being ignored, we are all volunteers here and if and when people have the time to help others they do, myself included.

    What is the BBCode for images on your SMF forum?

    bbPress converts these default BBCode [img] to `<img src=”…”>
    [img]http://www.google.com/intl/en_ALL/images/logo.gif[/img]

    If you have any custom BBCodes this will not work and you could either fix this in your SMF forum before importing or if your comfortable with MySQL you could update these in your database directly.
