Custom Import – how to skip fields that don’t apply
We’re trying to move our forums from a custom Q&A platform to bbPress… very glad there is now an importer!
So I copied example.php to myimport.php, changed the class name, and updated the tables/columns that apply (the ones that exist in the old database).
And ran the import…
But I keep running into import errors for fields that don’t apply as they don’t exist in the other database, like forums_table.the_reply_count
So for a field that just does not exist in the old database, what’s the proper syntax for “ignore this”? 🙂
For example, this one…
// Forum topic count (Stored in postmeta)
$this->field_map = array(
‘from_tablename’ => ‘forums_table’,
‘from_fieldname’ => ‘the_topic_count’,
‘to_type’ => ‘forum’,
‘to_fieldname’ => ‘_bbp_topic_count’
I looked for this on the importer codex page, but just don’t see it.
