Is it possible to change the appearance of BBPress more towards forum systems like SMF, MyBB, phpBB etc.?
The appearance of BBPress is very unergonomic compared to these forum scripts.
Narrow column in the middle, forum preview in the root without separation in lines, font too small etc. etc. etc.
I would like to use BBPress because it would be integrated in WP.
I have installed WordPress.
For testing, also MyBB in /forum.
I ask myself the question, is BBpress an alternative to extra forum scripts now?
A few years ago, BBPress was quite rudimentary, wasn’t it? Did this change?
Can BBpress keep up with all available plugins in the range of functions with forum scripts such as SMF, MyBB, phpBB etc.
Is there a good clear list of all plugins for BBPress?
Possibly with usage ranking. There will be a reason if certain plugins are used very often.
But also curated recommendations.
The plugin list here is very “simple”.
21 pages with 10 plugins each, not sortable, no recommendations or rating based on usage (not quality rating) …
I saw user avatars. But there may be different plugins for the purpose.
Or a map with the members.
I don’t know where to start.
And doesn’t want to try out hundreds of plugins.
E.g. such an insignificant little thing as using homemade forum icons.
Topic: Forum Statistics Plugin
Could someone point me to the plugin link for that plugin that adds the forum stats box that goes on the bottom of the forum, just like most other forums? I know its out there, i just cant remember the name of it. It makes your forum look more like PHPBB or smf.
There must be some documentation about how the import works but I can not find any. I’m finding a lot of fixes to scripts but no instructions about where they should go. If anyone can point me in the right direction I’d appreciate it.
At this point I’m getting the following when I start the import.
Ready to go.
I have a fresh bbPress install and want to import everything possible from my phpBB version 3.2.4 installation. The import runs and step 8 is importing lots of anonymous topic authors.
However, why aren’t my users importing? Based on other posts I ensure no topics/threads are attributed to founders/moderators/admins. (I created a single founder account and downgraded everyone else).
I see some references to a 3rd party import script, and other references saying its not needed. Can someone help? It’s Jan 15 2020 and I have the latest bbPress. Note sure hot to proceed.
Excerpt from log:
6.No forum subscriptions to import 5.All forum parents imported100% 5.Calculating forum hierarchy (0 through 11 of 11)0% 4.All forums imported100% 4.Converting forums (0 through 16 of 16)0% 3.No passwords to clear 2.No users to import 1.Skipping sync-table clean-up
All right, I’ll make a post. Usually try everything under the sun to troubleshoot things myself, and I’m usually successful, but this one is giving me fits. I’m importing a phpbb 3.1.9 database into the current release of bbPress. I plugged the MySQL database into my local server (it’s my box, I have full access) and pointed the importer at it. No problems up to that point. It creates users, deletes their default passwords, converts the forums, and then just continually tries the “Calculating forum hierarchy (X of X)” step over and over and over. I’ve tried restarting it, clearing previously-imported data, etc. – no dice.
I can get at whatever files might be necessary to get this working. This is a cluster of a migration on a few levels, so any assistance would be appreciated immensely. 🙂
Topic: Migrating from phpbb
I am trying to migrate from phpbb.
However, I have a very large phpbb forum that has hundred of thousands of rows to migrate (and obviously pressing continue every 5000 rows is tedious).
Is there a better way of doing this?
I am only really that bothered about keeping the users and the posts.
Topic: Trouble using importing tool
I am trying to import from an old phpbb forum to bbpress using the tool. I run it with row limit 1000, I have used 100 and it worked with the database. The problem is that it turns every post into a reply. They are in the same folder when importing from the phpbb database. Also it does not recognize the forums folder.
The forum folder is named: phpbb_3forums and the folder that contains both posts and replies is:phpbb_3posts. So I dont know why the forums don’t get recognized and why posts and replies get clumped up together.
This was not the problem in the last version. Last time I was just getting timed out but the Forums worked and pulled about 5k posts and the parents were done right. I have tried running the repair tools but doesn’t work.
