Help need migrating/updating from bbPress v2.0
I’ve inherited a WordPress site (v3.2.1) running bbPress v2.0. I’d like to update everything to current releases and then see about adding some features. I’ve run into roadblocks at every turn.
Because of custom plugins, I can’t upgrade anything, as it all breaks right away, so I thought I’d start with a fresh install of WordPress (v4.9.4) and bbPress (v2.5.14) and try to re-create the site.
I can’t get the old posts out of the old site and into the new one.
I tried “bbPress Import & Export”, which doesn’t do anything (blank screen when I try to export), but was able to get an XML file out of the Tools->Export page.
When I tried to import it on the new site, I was asked to match up all the users (a pain with over 200 to do one-by-one), which seemed successful, but I ended up with a main forums page that looks right as far as Topics and Posts go, but the Freshness column says “No Topics” and clicking into a thread results in a “Oh bother! No topics were found here!” message.
Any ideas? Thanks!
