Or maybe: How to “promote” bbPress forum topic to WordPress blog post?
@shooo, that was my solution. “^?” means any one character in a string. I had to repair the database sql file. One bbcode tag after another. Well, It works and looks ok now but it’s a lot of work.
Some bbcode tags had to be replaced with <span>. I don’t know if it is possible to define custom bbcode tags in wordpress. So I had to replace all with “<span class=”size150″>”, etc.
Rest of the tags work fine thanks to “bbPress2 BBCode” plugin.
I’ve got another question,
How to change parent forum for many topics ??? It would take ages to move topics one by one when there are hundreds and thousands of them.
ebiznet88, yep, converter created 9 individual characters for each post.
Well, I am ashamed to say it, but I used MS Word 2003 to make changes in my sql file.
Seems to work fine and no errors occured later. Coded as UTF-8 text file with no additional MS WORD characters.
I used something like:

I’ve got a problem with custom page templates and wordpress pages with bbcode shortcodes.
I’ve created a page “Forum “with shortcode [bbp-forum-index] and made it main Forum Page. Since most of my pages use sidebar, the one with forum index was meant to be fullwidth. I tried to set a custom page template but with no effect. The Twenty One template uses only default theme template and keep displaying sidebar.
I do know how to create custom page templates for wordpress but they just don’t work with bbpress plugin Anyway, I don;t know how to make bbpress work with my custom templates.
i do have a question to all of You,
i mentioned that bbcode was generated with some unwanted code:
[img:33mwiaq9]. It is different for each and every post, so I can’t just use simple UPDATE to get rid of it in “wpp_posts” table.
Does anyone know how to do that?
I can’t use:
UPDATE wpp_posts SET post_content = replace(post_content,”[img:33mwiaq9]”,”“)
that would only fix one post and not thousands of them.
I’ve been thinking os using something like:
UPDATE wpp_posts SET post_content = replace(post_content,'[b%’,’‘)
but that wouldn’t work either. It is always 8 signs that I have to delete in each bbcode tag.
@ebiznet “I tried editing the post to the original bbcode but it doesn’t work. Does bbPress use bbcode at all? I thought it does…”
I suggest install and activate “bbPress2 BBCode” wordpress plugin.
Is it normal that Converter completely destroys all the phpbb3 bbcode ??

Well, does anyone know how to fix such things?
“Home › Forums” displays children post or category as a title.
What’s more it shows different title for different browsers.
Examples (in my case):
“Home › Forums” – in Firefox: title “stare”
“Home › Forums” – in IE8 and Chrome: title: “KONKURS FTP ACADEMY”
I cleaned the cache for the browsers.
How to change it? Can i at least hardcode it somehow? What do You think?
That’s exactly what I did step by step. The same error on local and live installation.
by funny effect I mean when it shows for example “246 days” since the last post when in fact there are many more recent posts to show. It takes a random post and shows it as the freshest
I’ve finally managed to import all the posts BUT…
it took so so so long to convert all the data from phpbb3 to wordpress and I had to be very cautious during the process. I had to be careful with my browser window, wordpress session, etc. It reminded me of the times when I had Atari Computer with cassettes. Moreover the restart option didn’t work as described in documents.
I have problem with the “Freshness” of the posts. I cannot correctly synchroniz them. Sometimes it even shows “no topics”. bbPress Recount gives funny effects.
I am trying to convert phpbb3 database and it goes quite smoothly BUT suddenly stops at some point when converting posts
I’ve tried various ‘Rows Limit’ (50, 100, 200)
What am I doing wrong?
