Successful Migration from vBulletin 4.2.2 – First Thoughts
OK, after a long, painful day of multiple attempts, we finally successfully migrated our forums to bbPress. We’ve been on vBulletin for many many years.
We integrated with BuddyPress – the site can be seen here:
Clean, slick, overall, a better design once we tweak the .css to make the forums (specifically) look better.
Performance: not sure if it’s a plugin or what, but overall performance is sluggish on both the Buddypress and the bbPress side.
By far, the biggest disappointment and biggest feature request, in less than 24 hours of use, is the inability to find ANY plugin or way to easily let a forum user in bbPress show UNREAD threads/replies in one location. I’ve installed the pencil plugin, the “go to first unread post” plugin (which doesn’t seem to be showing up) and another plugin that puts a “new” icon next to a forum .. but that still requires one to click on each forum and dig through to try and find the actual new post or reply.
Someone PLEASE tell me that my 24+ hours of searching and scouring these forums and google results that a decent way to do this is out there? (w/o modifying core files)
