    > Do you have a wp_bb_terms table at all?

    No, or at least I didn’t. My database looked the same as yours. I had a wp_bb_messages_meta table that you don’t. I didn’t have wp_bbp_converter_translator table.

    Get ready to cringe, because here’s what I did. I know most people like to solve problems through information and insight but I prefer to bat at my keyboard like a monkey until something happens.

    I duplicated wp_terms, calling the new table wp_bb_terms. I reran the buddypress->bbpress migration and this time all topics and replies converted. I did a happy dance, captured it all in backupbuddy and haven’t looked back. So far, so good–I haven’t noticed any glitches yet.

    Thank you for the assist!!!



    Thanks for responding, Stephen!

    Yeah, I agree that the converter is a pain! I was excited because I had gotten past that step (I think). My unexpected brickwall is between BuddyPress and bbPress.

    The complete process I used is one that I originally documented here:

    tl/dr answer: I used BuddyPress 1.6.1 and the latest version of bbPress. I installed only BuddyPress during the Ning migration. After that was complete and looked good, I let BuddyPress update to its latest version and installed the latest version of bbPress. All topics AND replies existed at that point. I did the final migration from BuddyPress to bbPress and all replies disappeared.

    I don’t know either of these two plugins well yet but the only clue I have is the wp_bb_terms error message. Perhaps the migration is failing at that point and causing the replies to become disconnected. I just don’t know.

    It’s so frustrating to be THIS close!
