Where is the conversion tool these days? The link to the fileserver, in a message just above no longer works. Is the original script (here) still the best one to use, then? Its folder has _phpbb3_pass.php and phpbb3tobbpress.php files in it dated 09/12/2008
Any word on whether this converter works for phpBB3 v3.0.5 and bbpress v1.0? (asking before trying!)
Sadly, I think I was ignored over on WP forum site (perhaps I’m marked as a spammer there too?)
I ended up using the “Page Links To” plug-in within wordpress to make the forum ‘page’ actually take people to the bbpress installation.
It looks naff right now since bbpress theme doesn’t match up with WP theme. I have yet to figure out how you get bbpress to appear in a frame below your site’s menu bar. I guess both themes need to match up?
Thanks again for your help.
Thanks. I guess my point was really that the ‘out of the box’ program didn’t format things nicely (as I would have expected it to do, without needing to hack around in CSS). I don’t mind doing that, just that one of the benefits of bbpress is its simplicity (and why I want to switch over from phpBB3 to it).
Apache version 2.2.11 (Unix)

It didn’t redirect in 2.8RC2, even with the slug, however I am having problems with the permalinks showing index.php as part of them. I might just have to rip out WP and bbPress and start again (not a bother since the site I used them on its not even off the ground yet).
