As @netweb said we know that feeling.
To save some time one of the things I did was delete almost all users from my localhost copy of SMF so the import would take less time, I did this in order to find the conflicting topics faster to be able to delete them or fix them for the real import.
Maybe you should try it, I don’t know how much time would it save for you but it’s something.
Good luck 😀
I’m guessing that your making tests with a copy of your forum, right?
1- Check in your DB for the last topic imported and then check in your SMF DB for the following topic and delete it from the SMF admin, then restart the import. I kinda had the same problem with my first attempts and it seemed that one or two topics were causing the interruption of the import. Why? I do not know 🙂 I didn’t take the time to sort it out, I was just testing.
2- That’s normal, after you import you have to go to TOOLS -> FORUMS and then repair forums. For a large forum like yours do 1 checkbox at a time. Here your replies will be attached to their corresponding topics and it also fixes another couple things, I think when you see the page it explains itself.
3- That’s right, it will not import the hidden state but you can set that later on each forum you need to.
Nothing to thank me for, after a couple years wanting this import script, I’m more than glad to help, I just want to see it work for as much people as possible. I tried everything this past 4 or 5 years I think to combine my forum with my wordpress, I didn’t want a blog nor I wanted just a forum, and thanks to you and bbPress I’m so close to finally have what I wanted.
And thank you for that link, I was testing with 100 rows per second, I’m not on a dedi, but in my little VPS I think I could at least try 500 every 0.2 or something close.
Cheers and good night 🙂
Sorry to hear that, but glad you checked, it is awful to be waiting for hours to found out the wait was in vain, good luck with your next try 🙂
That’s weird, on every test I did I always saw some progress even if it was slow.
I always check on phpmyadmin to see if the DB is growing while the conversion is in process, maybe you should take a look, if the script is doing nothing checking your DB could save you some hours.
Those are some big numbers, hope you have a fast server because if not it will take a loooong time.
Good luck @infostrides may the force be with you and the cpu throttle not 🙂
Glad it helped.
I’m not aware of a script like that, though I would love to have it too.
The only thing I could recommend would be letting google know about the change with a SITEMAP
By script I meant the file SMF.3.PHP found attached in THIS TICKET as written in the first post of this topic.
You download it an then upload it to your site in this path
Should be in the plugins folder
Then follow the instructions in the link from my other post.
Hope that helps
First download the script and then upload it to
Then you can follow the instructions HERE
Happy to hear(read) that, and I envy you, I tried converting my SMF to phpbb first and didn’t work 🙁
Anyway, congratulations, enjoy this beautiful piece of software.
Have you tried on a local install of xampp or wamp in your PC?
@sachinsud you need to post more info about your situation my friend.
For example, is you WP on the same folder of your SMF? for example
How did you input your info in the converter fields?
How long did you wait? Depending on your server it might work reeeeeeeally slow.
What did you input in ROWS LIMIT and DELAY? If you for example input 2000 rows and your server is slow or your in a shared host, it may take several minutes to show something…
Thank you Stephen, so close to finally having my full site in WP, really, thanks for the hard work…
have a nice weekend.
And @ricov4 if you have SSH acces try
netstat -anp | grep -i mysql
By the way, congratulations Edgar @netweb well deserved promotion…In reply to: Congratulations Stephen Edgar!
Well, here are some ideas.
[glow=red,2,300]Glow[/glow]– What do we want to translate this to?
This is obviously a CSS Text-shadow without offset and with a little blur so the only thing that comes to my mind would be to convert this to a SHORTCODE and add in the documentation of the converter how to add it manually to the user’s wordpress install and to the theme CSS, since I can’t think of another way for this to work.
[shadow=red,left]shadow[/shadow]– What do we want to translate this to?
Same as the above but with a little offset to the 4 sides being able to pick a side in the shortcode and without blur.
[move]marquee[/move]– What do we want to translate this to?
JUST REMOVE IT, it’s ugly and old
[tt]– teletype? should this be a monospaced font?
And as for the smileys (extra space added so these render in code block)
; - )
8 - )unless a glasses smiley is added to WP
: ? :
: )I didn’t find what this smiley is supposed to be
: - (
: - x
: - ?unless a skeptical smiley is added to WP
; - )unless a kiss smiley is added to WP
: cry :
You guys are AWESOME, I can’t believe that after years I’m finally this close to having a full integration of my forum with my wordpress, thank you for the hard work…
@Allen Hi, your database name and also your DB username have to be dnadjser_dbname and dnadjser_usrname
@Allen in the last shoice, the prefix for SMF is “smf_” try it with that and see if the error persists.
And about the user, if you created one and added the privileges it should work.
