Import from Unclassified NewsBoard

  • Achim Meurer


    Hi everybody,

    I would like to transfer my forum ( to bbPress. The problem is: I have no idea, how I should do this. The unb forum has no export plugin/function. The only thing I can do, is a db dump.

    So, does anybody has an idea, how I can do this?

    Thanx for any hint!

  • bbPress 2.1 includes a conversion tool to import forums/topics/replies/users from some of the popular forum packages eg. bbPress or phpBB

    There is an ‘example’ file also included as a ‘reference template’ that if your forum software is using a SQL database then you could easily modify this to be a custom importer by matching the correct database tables/fields etc

    The file is called ‘example.php’ and is located in /wp-content/plugins/bbpress/bbp-admin/converters

    Thanx for the reply. my current forum uses mySQL, so I will try to modify the database to fit the converter. We’ll see… 😉
