Firstly, I don’t know of any converter out ther for it – so the chances of getting it done may be very slim.
Secondly, it seems that package has multiple forums in a single board package, which is completely different to bbPress.
Do you not like the current software you have?
The main reason I consider switching ist that I would like to use WordPress in the future for our website and would love a close integration of both.. that is the only real reason.
I see – I’m assuming you’d have to move everything manually using PHPMyAdmin – though you would need to know the format of the bbPress MySQL Database.
Is it a big issue to restart with a blank, fresh forum?
if you have some deeper knowledge in php, mysql and regular expression – you can use the phpbb3 converter and make some change to the code. The code of the phpbb3 converter is understandable – you only must change the tables and row to match the database structure of the Woltlab Burning Board. Its only the question of understanding …
Thanks a lot! I will look into it and if I do write a converter I will post it here
Another thing to consider is to find converter that converts from Wotlab to some other software like phpBB and then use existing converters for bbPress. This is how I converted on SMF forum.
