  • Hello Adam, well, to be honest, I don’t remember, I have done the first conversion like two months ago. Now I have just used the tables from the database. But it should be the standalone version 1.1. And yes, I do have the bbconverter_translator table. Do you want me to send you my tables? ;) thank you very much for your work and time!

    Hello Adam, congratulations to you wedding! I really appreciate that you work in the converter even thought you have so much other stuff to do! Wow!

    I have upgraded the converter just now and tried twice to convert the standalone bbpress 1.0 forum. But I had a problem – all the posts were converted as topics instead of posts :(. Do you have any clue why is that and how can I fix it? I had no such problem with the previous version of bbconverter (there I had the problem with the duplicate first post/reply on topics).

    Regarding the wp_users, I just tried to delete the e-mail addresses in the database and convert the users without the e-mail address. I hope that in this way the authors of the posts will be shown but at the same time my users might register again to my new site using their e-mail address. Hope it will work…:) thank you very much for your help! All the best from Misha

    Hello guys, thank you Adam for all the work you put into this converter! I really can’t wait for the updated version! Now I would like to ask all of you one maybe stupid question but is it somehow possible to convert the author’s of the posts without creating an entry in the wp_users database? My problem is that I have converted my whole site (I was previously using blog:CMS and punbb forum) into WordPress and now I decided that I will ask all my free users to create a new account for WP (to have fresh password, etc.) but I obviously can’t do this until I delete all the users that have been created by the converter. Yet once I delete them, their posts get deleted as well. I also tried to convert the forum without the users but the problem is that the forum then gets converted without the authors of the posts :(. So I am in a dead end here… I would basically need to keep forum’s authors (only name is sufficient) without creating an entry in the wp_users database (so that my users may register for WP using the same e-mail). Thank you very much for your help/advice/suggestions. All the best from Misha

    Hello guys, I just wanted to ask you how does it look with the bbconverter update? Is it going out any time soon? I really can’t wait to finish my project. Thank you very much!

    Hello guys, so I was able to convert my punbb forum at last. Firstly I have installed a stand alone version of bbpress 1.1 and then ran the script from this post https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/punbb-gt-bbpress . The conversion was a success with minor errors (in the forum names, etc.), which I corrected manually.

    Then I installed your converter while I was still running bbpress 1.1 and the conversion completed but the Replies weren’t linked to the Topics and Forums. I then uninstalled bbpress 1.1 and installed bbpress 2.0, realized the problem and ran the script again with the Clean option. Now the conversion completed without problems and everything was nicely converted! Thank you very much for this tool!

    Yet I am still facing a minor problem, which was already described by Ed – at the beginning of every topic I have an empty post by admin.. I didn’t have it in the bbpress 1.1 version so I guess that the mistake must have done during the bbpress1 to bbpress2 conversion. Due to this mistake all the topics are listed as started by admin…

    I would very much appreciate if you could advise me on how to get rid of the empty posts as I really didn’t get it yet. Also if you would release a new version of the converter that would face this issue, I would be more than happy to try it. Otherwise I can definitely recommend this way of punbb to bbpress2 conversion as I am a real newbie in all this stuff and yet was able to accomplish everything.

    All the best to all of you, Misha

    Hello, I would like to convert existing punbb forum into bbpress, I already have a script https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/punbb-gt-bbpress but I really don’t know how to import the data when bbpress is now using wp_posts table instead of wp_forum_forums etc. tables :(.

    Is there any way how to configure bbpress to use its standard tables so that the import would be possible? If not, then I would have to do everything manually through excel but I would still appreciate if you could help me with the wp_posts structure for forums, posts, etc. How do I specify what is a forum, what a category, what a topic, etc.?

    I have to add that I am absolutely inexperienced in forum conversion, php scripts and have some limited knowledge of the database (was already able to convert data from nucleus to WP). I however really need to accomplish this conversion asap and I am willing to play with the tables, lol.

    Would very much appreciate your help! Thank you!
