    Hi there, right now I’m using Mingle Forum for my website. But this is becoming unstable. I’d like to install bbpress but will my data and topics stay intact?

    @yolandal backup database and files, then check out the Mingle Forum importer https://codex.bbpress.org/getting-started/importing-data/import-forums/

    Finally I’m working on the forum changes, but I’m stuck with the instructions:
    Getting There
    Log in to your WordPress Admin Dashboard
    Select the ‘Tools’ tab select ‘Forums’ from the navigation menu
    Select the ‘Import Forums’ tab at the top of the screen.

    I don’t see the Import Forums tab?

    Hi,
    Directly under ‘Tools’, do you see ‘Forum import’ ? That is the one you need.
    The direct page should be: http://www.example.com/wp-admin/tools.php?page=bbp-converter
    Pascal.

    No, I don’t see Forum Import anywhere. Do I need to install an extra plugin to see that?

    If you have the bbPress plugin activated on your WordPress site.

    Go to Tools > Forums, then select the Import Forums tab at the top, then in the forum platform dropdown select mingle forum.

    As I said, I do not have that tab.
    As a matter of fact, I have no tabs at all in that option.

    You are in the bbPress plugin settings, but not the area I told you where it was.

    Maybe you have a plugin that reorder/removes menu items where you cannot see it??

    Wow, that’s an eye opener about a language problem!
    It’s in my EXTRA menu (Dutch).
    The advise was to go to SETTINGS, which is ‘Instellingen’ in Dutch.
    This has a FORUM page, which is the reason I was stuck in the wrong corner.
    Thanks for your printscreen, now I can make the next steps.
    Thanks!
