Imported topics don’t connect to forums
I’m currently running bbPress 2.6-beta-2 and WordPress 4.8 (I switched to the beta because it solved an issue that I ran into earlier during development).
I’m attempting to import bbPress forum content from an old SQL database into bbPress forums using a hand-rolled Perl script that maps the exported CSV fields to the fields in wp_posts and key/value pairs in wp_postmeta.
The Results and Issue
1. On the admin Topics page, my Topic is shown connected to the correct parent forum.
2. I can also view the topic page and comment on the topic.
3. But the imported Topic doesn’t appear in the forum when displayed on the site.
Here are the fields that I’ve successfully imported data into:
FOR FORUMS wp_posts:
FOR TOPICS wp_posts:
FOR TOPICS wp_postmeta:
When I update the Topic and the forum, WordPress creates additional meta_keys/values for each entry, but the Topic still doesn’t appear in the forum.
Questions: Are there other meta-keys/values I need in wp_postmeta, or any other key/values in any other table to get the Topic to appear? What am I missing?
Thanks in advance
