bbPress 2.1 includes a conversion tool to import forums/topics/replies/users from some of the popular forum packages eg. bbPress or phpBB
There is an ‘example’ file also included as a ‘reference template’ that if your forum software is using a SQL database then you could easily modify this to be a custom importer by matching the correct database tables/fields etc
The file is called ‘example.php’ and is located in /wp-content/plugins/bbpress/bbp-admin/converters
Thanks netweb for the advice. Unfortunately I have no idea how to modify the file 🙁
Sorry about that, I’ll try to have a look at adding some extra docs on customizing that example.php to help others ‘roll their own’ importer.
I would be very grateful! Please let me know when you do this.
Did you have a chance to modify that file?
