Importing posts from BuddyPress group forum
I have experienced an issue importing posts from a BuddyPress group forum. Originally I lost the link to all topics when I manually deleted some spam users directly in the tables wp_users and wp_bp_groups_members. In the group forum it simply stated “Sorry, there were no forum topics found.” So I thought I would upgrade to bbpress using the instructions here: https://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/guides/migrating-from-old-forums-to-bbpress-2/
I followed all instructions up to the import process and then the import just got stuck – i.e. nothing was imported.
Then I noticed no forums are now listed under Forums.
So I created a new forum, which looks different to the previous forum (presumably because I am now using bbpress and not the old Buddypress group forum – how to tell?). I can link this forum to my one Buddypress group, but now none of the old topics show – they are all still in the WordPress database, but I need to know how to get them into the new forum that I have created, or import them some other way.
I would be grateful for any advice.
