Importing from Rainmaker; Topics’ post_parent = 0
I’m importing forums from Rainmaker into WordPress 4.8.2 and BBPress 2.5.14. On first glance, it looks like all has done well; a quick glance at a sample Forum, for example, tells me:
“This forum contains 74 topics and 698 replies.”
However, my Topics and Replies are not being “found” when a Forum is clicked on:
“Oh bother! No topics were found here!”
This appears to be because the
wp_postsfor all these Topics and Replies is set to “0” in the database. And what’s worse, the “Repair” tools like “Recalculate the parent topic for each post” or “Recalculate the parent forum for each post” do not fix the problem;
post_parentremains at value 0.
The only way I have found to populate a Topic with the correct
post_parentvalue is to open that topic in the Editor and click Publish. But since I have hundreds of Topics and thousands of Replies, manually saving all these Posts is hardly a workable solution.
Does anyone know of a better way to solve this problem that doesn’t involve nearly infinite man-hours of drudgery and toil?
Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to give. Long live BBPress!
