Fix for PHPBB3 to BBPress conversion script

    Since I was helping a friend convert a phpbb2 board to phpbb3 I thought I’d take the time to also import the forums into bbpress (my preference).
    I initially tried the import but could not get it to work and after looking on the forums saw that I was not alone.
    To get the import to work I had to remap some fields in the phpbb conversion script and comment out some obsolete ones (took about 30 minutes.

    If anyone needs to get your PHPBB3 users and forums converted in BBPress you can replace the phpBB.php file in wp-content\plugins\bbpress\includes\admin\converters to match the following updated code: https://gist.github.com/pixelnated/a7a9c41154cf64696ddd1c2e4f4327ed

    its really a pitty. It runs so smoothly, but will only convert 15000 replies. Last try: does anyone moved from phpBB to bbpress with more than 15000 replies???

    Yes i don’t understand why bbpress don’t do anything about these problems many people want to convert but if it isn’t possible it stops :(.
