    Attached to bbPress Trac Ticket #2380 is the 1st pass patch for SMF importing into bbPress.

    To test the importer download the latest patch from the link above and copy/ftp the file into the /includes/admin/converters/ folder of your bbPress plugin.

    I hope to get the remaining outstanding items done ASAP.
    (User passwords will be a little trickier and will take a bit more time)

    Any feedback and/or testing that you can provide will help me out tremendously.

    Cheers,

    Stephen 🙂

    Hello,

    I have been wanting to switch to bbPress from SMF 2.0.9. I ran the importer and all looked well until I compared the number of topics in various forums and found the bbPress import is about 1/2.

    Here is a screenshot of the smf url and the topics and posts in the first 3 forums on the smf installation.

    Here is a screenshot of the topics and replies on the bbPress forum conversion I just did.

    It also seems to have doubled the users – here is a screenshot from the smf forum

    Here is a screenshot from the bbPress convert

    I did a complete reset of the forum before the convert. If you need to see the bbPress forum it can be found at http://www.thefrugallife.com/forums

    Please tell me how to fix these issues so I can start using the bbPress forum instead of smf.

    Thanks,

    Randal

    Hi Stephen,

    is there any way to get a little support from you? I am not very firm in php/mysql and I need to import data to bbPress from my SMF forum. Maybe we could get in touch for a little chat? I think its nothing big for you but for me its rocket science. 😉

    The import is working (except of the attachments) but the text is losing his style and there a lots of “<tt>” in the text after the import.

    I would be very happy, if we can talk to each other to solve this problem. I really want to use bbPress with my community now! 🙂

    Here you can see the problems: http://v2.germansimracing.de/community/
    Just open one of the threads and you will see the different fonts etc.

    @Stephen – I missed your response to my last comment, thanks for following up. 🙂

    I checked out the 2.6 milestone tickets and was happy to see a solution to my problem already in there.
