SOS Migrate from Buddypress Group forums to Bbpress sitewide forums

    @tbermudas

    Hello

    I’m migrating from ning and to save my data I have to use an importer that only works with old versions. I am working with buddypress 1.2.10 to import my forums.

    Once I finish the import process, how can I migrate my buddypress group forums to bbpress sitewide in bbpress 2.3?

    I have found info about how to migrate from buddypress legacy groups to the new buddypress groups powered by bbpress, but not to sitewide forums!

    There is any way?

    Thanks

    Simple question. It’s possible to convert or export group forums to site wide forums??

    BuddyPress 1.2.10 is an extremely old version. You’ll want to update incrementally to the current version of BuddyPress first, then bbPress, and then run the migration scripts.

    You’ll want to backup your data, in case something goes wrong. You’ll also probably end up doing some manual work and guessing about what needs to happen, since every installation has its quirks.

    I have read here: https://codex.buddypress.org/user/buddypress-site-administration/migrating-from-old-forums-to-bbpress-2/ how to do the first step.

    But I don’t know if its possible to convert the group forums into “normal” forums (site wide).

    THANKS for your response!

    bbPress 2.3 will convert Group Forums to regular Forums, and it’s up to you and your installation to determine if they’re connected to Groups or not.

    THANKS.

    I work with an older version because the plugin to migrate my content from ning seems to work fine only with this version. I’m gonna try the incrementally update and see what happens.

    Thanks again!!
