Need Migration Help

  • timsilva_


    I’m looking to hire someone with experience in migrating data into bbPress (BuddyPress as well). I got most of the data working from the standard forum importer that comes with bbPress, but that porter doesn’t support everything that I had in my SMF forum. Technically, the bbPress software, being lean, simply doesn’t have these features. Here is what I want to import manually:

    1.) Private messages (into BuddyPress’s messages)
    2.) Signatures (into GD bbPress Tools)
    3.) Thread view counts (via this custom method)
    4.) Avatars
    5.) Stickied topics
    6.) Deleted usernames (Posts from users on SMF who deleted their own accounts all get bucketed into a single account)

    If anyone can help with any or all of these, let me know. I can simply migrate without these manual bits if necessary, but I at least want to try to save the data.

    Hi there, I’m still curious if there’s anyone on here with manual MySQL migration skills. References to someone you know would be helpful too. Otherwise, does anyone know of any good places to find WP specialized backend devs who freelance?

    My budget is $5k.

    Thanks! 🙂

    Thanks for the suggestion Pascal!

    I didn’t realize that page was for any and all jobs (I assumed it was jobs for Automattic). I will definitely give that a shot.

    Cheers. 🙂
