@Fred_L I’m sorry but I prefer to not share the URL of the converted forum. I just can say that I converted a Joomla site with +6000 users (Community Builder), +15000 forum posts (kunena) and +3000 articles (joomla) to WordPress successfully using BuddyPress and bbPress. It was not a single click operation, specially importing users and profile data and keeping posts and articles assigned to its original author. Another important thing is that all passwords will be reseted, there is no way to keep passwords unchanged during the migration, so users must be noticed about that.
As if bbPress is a good final forum platform, you have the best example here in bbpress.org forums. In my experiencie, Joomla + kunena + CommunityBuilder require a lot of less resources that WordPress + BuddyPress + bbPress, but there are also a lot of advantages; also disadvantages; in general I’m happy with the migration but you will need to decide yourself considering your specific needs and context.
I migrated the attachments succesfully. You must edit the script:
Change these lines (6 and 7) with the correct path:
require( '/home/user/public_html/wordpress/wp-load.php' ); require( '/home/user/public_html/wordpress/wp-admin/includes/image.php' );
Add the data of your site and database (lines 10 to 14):
$host="localhost"; $uname="db_username"; $pass="db_username_password"; $database = ""; $site_url = 'http://www.example.com';
In line 28 change
j25_kunena_attachmentsto the same name as your attachments table name.
I’m sorry for the trouble but, as I said, the script is in very early stage but made the job for me.
Finally I’ve written a small script to migrate kunena attachments to GD bbPress attachments. It is in a very early stage, any help are really wellcome. You must run the script as standalone and only after the kunena migration has been performend using the importer distributed with bbPress.
Now I’d like to write a script to convert kunena BBCode into bbPress HTML because there are some bbcodes not converted.
