Re: question about exporting from bbpress
Let me see if I understand the importation scheme you’re hoping for:
1.) One-time import.
2.) Each forum “section” would be a category in WordPress.
2a.) Should a category not exist, it will be created.
3.) Replies to a topic would be created as comments in a blog entry.
4.) Tags (if any exist) would be dropped.
This is going to be simple if I even decide to possibly tackle this. I don’t use either product in production, but have messed around with both of them. The biggest question I have is about users… Obviously, you’ll have users in the forum that don’t exist in WordPress. Would each user need to be created for wordpress, or would all of the imported entries default to a specified user? This would be the hardest (in my mind) thing to figure out and handle.
