@casiepa, it is rather strange that this just recently started happening. I thought it was a plugin conflict at first until I saw the logs and googled the error to have found it might be a bug. Do you think v2.6 is stable enough to upgrade?
Using the default wordpress export/import tool:
The problem started when importing the topics, they would import fine but would not display or show up in the parent forums. This was easily fixed if I resaved them. But this is an issue due to having over 2,400 topics and 15,000 replies.
I ran into another problem, because we have imported the user and usermeta table first, when importing topics and replies it asked to assign them to the user account. I manually have to select the user to assign them to, if I do not it would assign them all to my admin account. So I tried that with the topics and assigned them all to user account. However this did not assign all topics to the user account, some (about 150) topics were still assigned to me.
So what I tried was doing a raw forums, topics and replies data dump of the posts and postmeta and importing to the existing NEW tables. This was almost flawless with 0 data loss except for the fact that there are duplicate ID’s, about 1400 in the posts table and thousands more in the postmeta table.
Do you know of a way that we can run a script on the 2 tables and give all unique ID’s starting at a specific number that would match both the id on posts and post_id on postmeta table. I have extracted the forums, topic and reply data and imported them to their own table. If I gave new id’s I could easily import them without duplicate errors. What do you think of this? This is the way we really prefer to do it for 0 data loss. Keeping the forums, topics and replies exactly as they are now.
version bbPress 2.5.14
We’re going BBPRESS TO BBPRESS both same version.
Using default wordpress exporter/importer. Moving forums, topics and replies from one database to the other. BBPRESS to BBPRESS.
Also found that I have to resign users to their topics and replies on the import, which is very time consuming. If I just click import, the topics and replies get assigned to my account, when the other users account do exist.
I finally found out that if I just do a raw mysql dump I can import all the data with 0 loss and they get tied to the correct account but the problem with that lies in the ID – I get duplicates because of the data that is already existing from pages and blog posts. Do you have a script that I can run to easily changes ID’s across 2 tables “posts” and “postmeta”? I think that would be the best way of handling a migration.
I imported forums and that went fine.
I imported topics and they do not show in any forums. I re-save topics and they show up in forums. But having to save over 1,400 topics is a problem.
I have not yet imported replies but based on other people’s problems this is also going to be an issue. I cannot re-save over 15,000 replies to have them show up in topics.
This is using the WordPress built in export and import.
I have tried disabling all plugins except bbpress. I have tried saving permalinks. Nothing has worked.
I have tried the latest bbpress version, I have tried the RC version and I have tried the beta version. All with the same results.
I am having the exact same problem! I am actually manually saving over 1400 topics and this solves the issue BUT I have over 14,000 replies. What is the solution? Everything you mentioned above does not work.In reply to: Topic url structure like bbpress forums
This seems to be the solutions:
