    Hello.

    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.

    Hello.

    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.

    I currently have many bbPress plugins, and they can add wide range of features that other forum software (like phpBB or similar forums) already have. Check out my other plugins for more information.

    @Milan, thanks for that link. That’s exactly what I’m looking for. The plugin I had was billed as making your site look like phpbb 🙂

    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.

    Thanks, Richard

    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.

    Starting Import…
    Ready to go.

    Thank you

    BUMP!

    (yes I know this is an almost nine year old thread ;))

    Years ago (before this thread was created) I asked Sam Bauers about how bbPress 0.9 compared to phpBB and he said that bbPress was slower by default, but as soon as you hooked up an object caching backend, that bbPress wooped phpBB quite easily.

    But does anyone have an idea of how the “new” bbPress plugin compares to say phpBB performance wise? Logged out users are easily handled by caching, but what about the logged in folk? With some aggressive object caching, we can tank the number of queries to a minimum and it will run a ton faster, but I have no idea how this compares to the more “standard” forum tools.

    And are there any tricks to making bbPress handle huge forums?

    Let’s say it’s not in the Topic Types section – is there any other plug-in or concept that would allow me to somehow denote specific topics to get a different class? That’s all I’m looking for. We used to do it all the time on regular forums like phpbb – I’m just hoping there is something on this bbpress to mimic that response.

    you can use this code :

    class phpBB extends BBP_Converter_Base {

    /**
    * Main Constructor
    *
    */
    public function __construct() {
    parent::__construct();

    */
    public function setup_globals() {

    // Setup smiley URL & path
    $this->bbcode_parser_properties = array(
    ‘smiley_url’ => false,
    ‘smiley_dir’ => false

    /** Forum Section *****************************************************/

    // Old forum id (Stored in postmeta)
    $this->field_map[] = array(

    (I also tried converting all of my phpBB tables to utf8mb_unicode_ci but that didn’t help).

    The onscreen status is very high level. Is there an import log somewhere that might provide more details- pointing to something I can fix? I’m comfortable altering the MySQL structure of phpBB if needed.

    I had the same problem (with phpBB 3.2.4) and no users importing. I tried creating a new founder and downgrading everyone else to standard accounts.

    It still won’t work. Was there anything else you did?

    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. 🙂

    I know about aravatars. when I turned them on after migration fro phpbb – lost of users got pissed off, and left to other similar forums which provide what our forum does…

    But at least buddypress allows uploading the avatar..

    IMHO not being able to upload their own avatar.. but having to register and use aravatars.. is a major drawback in otherwise great BBPress

    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.

    phpBB version is 3 but not the newest version of it. I’m doing this for another person, who has custom code on the site and he said that he is unable to update the version.

    The row amount. I get the same results with either 100 or 1000.

    The problem is just that it doesnt recognize the forum folder to get the top parent forums. 2nd problem. The importer changes posts into replies and now every post is a reply.

    #206377

    Which version of phpBB?

    1000 rows at a time is pretty high. Make sure you have quite a bit of RAM/memory available for that many at once.

    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.

    Hi All,

    Had the same issue as described above. The default phpbb.php import script didn’t convert anonymous users of topics and replies and the Pixenated script looped infinately with the conversion of users.

    I’ve fixed the script and uploaded to PasteBin. Feel free to share widely.
    https://pastebin.com/0QQbxL4z

    How To:
    1) Upgrade phpBB to v.3.2.5+
    2) Install BBpress 2.6 RC7
    3) Upload to /wp-content/plugins/bbpress/includes/admin/converters/phpbb.php

    Remember that real men don’t do backups. They cry a lot.

    I got it to work. I updated my phpbb install to 3.2.8 and used wurkagency’s script (https://pastebin.com/0QQbxL4z).

    I’ve tried to import my phpBB users using bbPress 2.6.1 and also the above fix from wurkagency and am getting…

    3.No passwords to clear
    2.No users to import

    …during import.

    I tried demoting any admin/founders with any content as HammyHavok suggested with the same results.

    Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
