Check out https://codex.bbpress.org/getting-started/importing-data/import-forums/
If your source forum is not in the list, there is a custom importer.
Let us know if it works or not !
Unfortunately, under the link that you provided, there is no script that I am currently using. I tried to modify the converter from phpBB.php and Example.php, but unfortunately I get errors … I need your help! I am determined to have a forum based on bbpress (100k posts, 10k topics).
I read a lot about migration, I tried to move the whole thing from newbb to phpbb, mybb, smf, but these forums also do not have a converter.
Only someone who deals with daily php and programming can help me.
First up, if you use bbPress 2.6 beta there are huge updates to the importer 🙂
You can download bbPress 2.6 beta from https://bbpress.org/download/
I’d suggest you look at either the phpBB or SMF importers, the two of those are the best examples that uses as much functionality as possible.
I’ll take a look at that table structure you posted later today and see if I can make some suggestions to help, p.s. very helpful that you posted that, so thanks 🙂
I already installed this beta. Tomorrow, as soon as I get up, I’ll make coffee, I’ll try with those converters, but I doubt I’ll succeed … I’ll be grateful for any help shown. I think that such a “newbb” forum converter will in the future help other users. I will keep you updated on progress or lack thereof 🙂
I took the phpBB.php modification. I replaced the names of 3 tables in the database: from “xoops_bb_posts” to “posts”, from “xoops_bb_posts_text” to “posts_text”, from “xoops_bb_topics” to “topics”.
I am working on a converter, converting a forum category -> OK, the first error appears when it starts to convert topics:
Błąd bazy danych WordPressa: [You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'INNER JOIN posts_text AS posts_text USING (topic_id) WHERE posts.post_id = topic' at line 1]
SELECT convert(topics.topic_id USING "mypass") AS topic_id,convert(topics.topic_replies USING "mypass") AS topic_replies,convert(topics.forum_id USING "mypass") AS forum_id,convert(topics.topic_poster USING "mypass") AS topic_poster,convert(topics.poster_name USING "mypass") AS poster_name,convert(posts.poster_ip USING "mypass") AS poster_ip,convert(posts_text.post_text USING "mypass") AS post_text,convert(topics.topic_title USING "mypass") AS topic_title,convert(topics.topic_status USING "mypass") AS topic_status,convert(topics.topic_type USING "mypass") AS topic_type,convert(topics.topic_time USING "mypass") AS topic_time,convert(topics.topic_last_post_time USING "mypass") AS topic_last_post_time FROM topics AS topics INNER JOIN posts AS posts USING (topic_id) WHERE posts.post_id = topics.topic_first_post_id INNER JOIN posts_text AS posts_text USING (topic_id) WHERE posts.post_id = topics.topic_first_post_id LIMIT 0, 100
It seems to me that the problem is because the “newbb” system uses two tables to display the response content: xoops_bb_posts and xoops_bb_posts_text. The structures are both here; http://www.kulturystyka.org.pl/newbb_table_structure.txt
I just edit file Example.php but when try import data it says: No topic converters. Look at this file please and help me.
Really no one can help me? I am very interested in it, I am writing in the help forum, but I did not get it. After all, the people who wrote all the converters will certainly be able to modify one of them. It’s only been a few days since I created the topic, maybe too soon I would like the forum to work on bbpress script …. However, I hope that there will be a person willing to help. Regards, Michal sorry for my english 🙂
Stephen Edgar where are You?
I’m currently building a converter from google groups to bbPress. When I finish that one I might have a look to help you. Can you drop me an email so we keep in touch. You can find my email on http://casier.eu/wp-dev/
OK no problem ;-))))))))))))
I had to wait more than a month, but hopefully it was worth it, I hope … it only left me.
I still need help with migrate forum xoops newbb to bbpress, it`s similar mysql structure like phpbb. I can pay for help. My mail: michal [ at ] kulturystyka.org.pl
I’m worging on WP plugin to convert this:
I am impressed, tell me if you can only choose a forum for migration or immediately migrate the entire content of xoops? It works ? This is for free ?
Angelo, we know each other from the xoops forum, I use your xboostrap template 🙂
I do not hide that I care about the time when you plan to finish this project? I mean only to move the content of the forum (sections, topics, speeches and users).
This plugin is already functional, I’m working on a user-friendly interface, currently only works with some programming settings.
This site: https://www.guiadocftv.com.br/
It was migrated successfully using my plugin. At the moment I’m running out of time to finish it, as I’m involved in other WordPress projects, it’s how I make my living.
This plugin is under GPL license, anyone from this forum can help in its finalization. Any doubts I am available.
Yesterday I installed this plugin, but I do not see any migration option anywhere … I am asking you for help, I can give data to my server, phpmyadmin etc.
Comments on the xoops module “news” also this plugin moves?
I am waiting 2 years on this forum for any help! sick… I thought that it helps people here
I would like to finally go on wordpress and bbpress.
Please Angelo Rocha help me, You are the last man who gonna make this, i migrate all articles with comments and users, i need migrate only module NEWBB.
Best regards. You can find my e-mail previous message.
I can pay via paypal for Your job/time.
You know how to do it, you have experience, I’m unfortunately not a programmer, I hope you help me.
I speak with you by email, now I’m in my job, tonight i reply you. Sorry for my horrible english =D
OK no problem. I am from Poland and using google translate sometimes. I am glad You speak to me by mail. I wanna finally move to wordpress. I hope with Your help my dream come true.
Regards and thanks for reply.
Hi Angelo. I had read this topic years ago, hoping for a solution and now I have fortunately found your project.
I installed the plugin, but the lack of documentation doesn’t help me. I don’t understand where and how to enter the parameters of the xoops site.Where should I upload the old xoops site?
Can you please explain how can I proceed?
I would like to move users and all the contents of the old newbb forum (there are 3334 topics and 35950 messages).
Articles, images and more I could also move them manually.
Thanks very much!
This week i’will update the plugin to put a user interface in admin page.
Another adjusts be necessary to detect XOOPS data, in Michal site, the site url field is different from what was programmed in the plugin, these adjustments are necessary so that you do not need a programmer for you to migrate your site.
To start the migration you need to install WordPress in the same base of your site xoops, change the table prefix. Check if in the plugin panel it will detect the URL of your site xoops.
Nice post! a friend from https://abokiplay.com/ directed me here
ok thanks Angelo for your reply.
I’ll wait for the interface update. I am sure that your work will help many users.
