How to import bbPress data to an existing website.

  • cinderalla


    I’ve been working 2 days on trying to import a bbPress 2.5 forum into an existing website. My last attempt was manually changing and relinking all the forums, topics, and replies in the WordPress Importer’s exported xml files.

    Everything looks good in respect to showing correct topic, post, reply, and voice counts. What I can’t figure out is why the topics and replies don’t list on the child forum pages or on the topic pages. Those pages say at the top the correct number topics and replies (i.e. “This forum contains 10 topics and 16 replies, and was last updated …), but directly under that it says “Oh bother! No topics were found here!”

    I’m guessing that I’m missing some sort of ID linking that doesn’t show on the xml export. Please, can anyone help? Would really appreciate any help. Thanks!

    Read this old post maybe you find some help from it

    Migrating from one bbpress installation to another



    Thanks for your response @alexkevin. I did see that old post and it partly helped.

    I did finally end up getting the migration to work with the WordPress Importer by exporting and importing ALL the content (instead of just forums, topics, replies) from the old website. When I only exported the forums, topics, and replies from the old, they weren’t linking properly.
