Export / Import Not Linking Replies to Topics Correctly

    I am trying to move a forum from one site to a new one. I went to Tools > Export on the old site and exported “forums”, “topics” and “replies”. Then I went to the new site and went to Tools > Import > WordPress and imported each. I am seeing all the data in the admin as far as I can tell but when I try and view it on the front end it is not showing any replies within the topics. The listing page of topics is correctly showing how many replies there should be, but none appear.

    I then tried going to Tools > Forum and repairing each item separately and after I did that It was only showing each topic on the frontend as not having any replies.

    However, if I do the import without doing the repair and then go to the reply I’m expecting to see and “save” it… I now see that reply under the proper topic on the frontend.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks for the fast reply! Upon further investigation I discovered the issue was with bad data on the old site where a lot of replies had a post_parent that either didn’t exist or it was not a bbPress post_type.

    Can I ask how you went about fixing that? I’m seeing something similar on my site.
