    Hey all,

    Is there a way to export all forums content, including topics, posts and members registered, and then import it on another bbpress installation?

    I have one forum on with registered members and around 5.000 posts, and I have WP blog on, where I just installed bbpress, but not sure how can I import my forum to

    First of all, for the export/import, consider the v2.6 of bbPress as exporting and importing has been improved. It’s a release candidate but very stable:

    To export: Tools > Export and select forums, topics and replies
    To import: Tools > Import and choose WordPress



    Hi all… I’m trying to export/import a bbpress forum very large (20k topic, 10k user and so on)
    from a wordpress site ( to another ( .. is there some plugin than can help me to do it? I’m triyng to do it using export/import function of wordpress… but I have only errors… thnkx a lot



    Hi, I would need to move our forums, topics, replies and the users from development server to live site. I have done with exporting and importing those in live site, but the relationship between the forums and topics are not getting updated, so we are getting a message as no topics inside the forum when viewed from frontend.

    Can anyone let me know if there are any other ways to perform this export/import functionality?



    Hi, I’m also trying to do this, with no luck so far.
    I have separate xml export files for Forum, Topics and Replies.
    I can import the Forum and Topics, but not replies ( They import but then crash WP when you try and view them from the dashboard )

    When I import Topics they all show OK in the dashboard but not in the forum. To get them to appear in a forum you have to edit each Topic and update it ( nothing more ). This is painful when there are thousands of Topics.

    Has anyone solved how to Import existing XML exports? I’d especially like to be able to import into an existing bbpress forum which would need merging and new post ids etc.

    Any ideas?

    Thnx Alan
