Kunena converter for bbPress 2.4
Apparently having a few broken attachments lingering from a phpbb3 to Kunena migration several years ago is what is giving me a problem now migrating attachments to bbPress.
The error I’m seeing in my logs is:
[15-May-2014 22:32:08 UTC] PHP Warning: copy(http://www.mydomain.com/media/kunena/attachments/phpbb3/Cabs%201.jpg) [<a href='function.copy'>function.copy</a>]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found in /home/username/public_html/dev002/kunena-attachments-to-bbpress.php on line 45
I looked to see if there was a “Kunena fix for broken attachments” script but nothing popped up yet.
Sorry to resucitate an old topic but not getting any feedback on mine and for what I can see there´s not many Kunena importer related topics, any help would be appreciated.
Did you use a plugin or your own coding? Would you be willing to share the url of the migrated forum? I’m looking to do the same > migrating from Joomla Kunena to WP bbPress. Since you posted 1 yr and 5 mo. ago do you have any updated suggestions or warnings on how to best accomplish this migration successfully? We have 5,000+ registered users, 11 categories and 44,000+ posts. Many thanks in advance!!

For those of you who went from Kunena to bbPress: Would you be willing to share the url of the page with the migrated forum? Would you recommend bbPress to do the migration and as a final forum platform?
I have a VERY nervous client who is reluctant to leave Joomla for WP ONLY because their existing forum (5,000+ users, 11 categories, 44,000+ posts) is on Kunena. They had a bad experience several years ago when another developer tried to do the migration.
Many thanks in advance!
@Fred_L I’m sorry but I prefer to not share the URL of the converted forum. I just can say that I converted a Joomla site with +6000 users (Community Builder), +15000 forum posts (kunena) and +3000 articles (joomla) to WordPress successfully using BuddyPress and bbPress. It was not a single click operation, specially importing users and profile data and keeping posts and articles assigned to its original author. Another important thing is that all passwords will be reseted, there is no way to keep passwords unchanged during the migration, so users must be noticed about that.
As if bbPress is a good final forum platform, you have the best example here in bbpress.org forums. In my experiencie, Joomla + kunena + CommunityBuilder require a lot of less resources that WordPress + BuddyPress + bbPress, but there are also a lot of advantages; also disadvantages; in general I’m happy with the migration but you will need to decide yourself considering your specific needs and context.
