Re: A phpBB to bbPress database converter
I was looking at this conversion again and one really useful thing it misses out is converting internal links – eg: if someone has posted a link to a certain topic within the forum, the link will no longer work.
If it could convert from the standard phpbb format eg: forum/viewtopic.php?t=7836
to the default bbpress format eg: forum/topic.php?id=7836
or does the smilies conversion only search for standalone text (ie: it wouldn’t convert phrases within a string)??
would adding something like this to the smilies conversion section work?
‘viewtopic.php?t=’ => ‘topic.php?id=’,
I guess you could also write a new viewtopic.php file that could parse those links, although that’s a bit of a workaround.
