forget it. I decided that it might be best to have it as is.
Stephen, this was news as whenever I looked in import before, there was nothing referring to bbpress. So I checked out here, https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/import-bb-data-from-csv-file-to-bbpress-forum/. I reset everything to WP 4.0.1, and bbpress 2.5.4. and tried to follow through your instructions. But mapping fields was way too complicated for me since I would put down post-id but there wasn’t another column with a “map to”. I was ready to go back to bbconverter as the only problem I had was html code in the topics and replies which I would have to strip. Minor, as my old forum is not very big, but still tedious enough.
But then I tried this. I reset everything to WP 3.6 and bbpress 2.0.2. Checked the Tools > Import, and what do you know, there was a bbpress standalone link! Following through I converted everything over. Reviewed the test site: forums, topics, replies, voices, users, tags, and any stray html code in posts. WOW, everything was there, exactly where it should be, with exact content duplicated!
For any integration on bbpress standalone into wp, I highly recommend integrating with WP 3.6 and bbpress 2.02.
These two plugins have been combined into Frank Bültge latest, which does not have topics as one of the content options. Any other suggstions? I should think bbpress should have a plugin to address search and replace in topics.
Stephen, I wasn’t sure what I was to do once I had the post ID from the database, as there wasn’t any where to call for post id’s on the dashboard. But I solved my original problem with no replies, as follows:
I deleted everything and started over with installing wp and then integrating bbpress. My problem was that I had de-activated all other plugins before using bbconverter, as the only active plugin. The key is to have the plugin bbpress also activated before using bbconverter to integrate. Plugin BBpress activation helps bbconverter to know where to put everything like replies, voices, and comments, putting everything in the right place.In reply to: Converting version 0.73 to the latest version
You need to convert in different steps. See if you can convert to version 1.1. Your error is easily handled. Instead of converting into your existing bb_, try something different like bb2_. Then you will not have any errors about tables missing.
Found the replies in wp_posts. Deleted the rows with spam. Solved one aspect of the problem. Even though the database classifies them as posts, in the wp dashboard some numbered in replies (which I still can’t view in the dashboard), while they also show up in topics. But they don’t show up as posts in the dashboard. Any solution to forcing the replies to view in the dashboard?In reply to: Edit CSS Stylesheet from Dashboard Editor?
There is a more advanced way. Edit your style.css file in your css editor, then upload to your site. Make sure you have a backup of your working stylesheet before making any changes.
For css editor suggestions:
I actually use Bluefish which is a combination css/html editor.

Did you follow these directions?

You don’t need to use the blog of WP. Just use the bbpress plugin. The current BBPress version is not standalone.In reply to: Top margin website
The code you will need to change will be in style.css of your theme. To track down the specific line code, click your cursor on that element, then if you are in firefox, go into to your web developer section, and use inspector or page source.In reply to: Custom style of bbPress
Follow this directions
Using wordpress is not overkill. Think of wordpress as an overall operating system where you have registration and login abilities, different roles for different users, spam filters like Wangguard. Then you use bbpress as a plugin for your forum.
How can you not want the user system if you have a forum?
WP is not overkill.
I agree this restriction is very important. I would like to take it one step further and have restriction until WangGuard clears for “sploggers”. One reason why spam registration is so consistent, even though I have only 1-2 a day is because sploggers can look at the members info.
Okay, I had to add shortcode bbp-topic-index to my index.php which brought the front page back to the way it was before the update of bbpress2.3. Why would this happen? I shouldn’t have to make coding changes every time there is an updated bbpress plugin. I never had to re-code after an update before.
I guess it is NOT the latest posts, which is wp, but the lasts topics of bbpress that used to be listed instead of the forum summary page.
When I removed the bbpress Moderation, nothing happened.
Thanks for the link on hiding the bbpress search box, Jared.
Now, all I need is to get my latest posts back on my front page.
Okay, how do I include code in the posts? I tried the “code” with the opening and closing tags around my actual code, but as you can see above, it removed the code totally.
In my index.php, I eliminated the shortcode “ which got rid of the Oh bother! No topics were found here!
In my index.php, I do have the shortcode
If I eliminated that, would the front page show the latest posts?
Previously only the wordpress search was on the page on the left side column. I thought that would be sufficient to search through bbpress posts especially with the plugin that I have, see below. I would like to disable the bbpress search box.
My plugins are bbpress, bbpressmoderation, bbpress topics for posts, en Spam, search bbpress 2.0, and wanguard.
Here is my link. http://www.canadianbookclubs.com/forums2/
Where you see the forum summary section, it used to be the latest posts.
And there is a new search box above the new forum summary page. So now I have two search boxes on the page. One that is set by wordpress, and one that has appeared courtesy of the updated bbpress plugin
Is there any way to revert back to the bbpress plugin before this last update?In reply to: I'm afraid update bbPress in every release!In reply to: bbPress 2.2.2 released
Awesome, let’s try a fresh conversion…..:( Still mostly Anonymous associated with the topics.
Ran the check you suggested spwestwood, my second and third columns match. No problems there.
I know I had a lot of problems with anonymous spammers where I had to shut down the forum. The anonymous posters would not aim to post publicly but just to fill my recently moderated section with website links and marketing talk. Even though I had long ago deleted the anonymous poster file, the anonymous posters were still a problem internally, creating havoc.
I agree John, it is a clever approach.
As John knows my problem is with Anonymous getting all the credit in posts. My wp_users are correct. The IP address link for each topic is correct. But the nickname assigned to the topics is incorrect. All plugins on bbpress 1.1 and wp 3.4.2 were deactivated before the migration/integration.
I think I need to try what spwestwood did. But my MySQL skills are limited. Do I use new query for each statement? Or do I run the first four statements in a new query?
