tranfer posts from another forum

  • Hi,

    I dont know if I min the right category but i didn’t know where o post something like this.

    We ve got a website with joomla and we are making the new one in wordpress.

    Everything till now is ok.

    Our problem is how to transfer the forum.

    It is no need to keep all the data or the user’s accounts, so we said only to transfer the posts and the categories, and offcourse some details about the posts , like date time and person name.

    We thought to make a new user named “old forum” and link to him all the posts that are not written by the admin.

    Here come the questions(?)

    How i can link in the database the posts and the categories?

    Which tables do i have to use?

    Is something like this possible?

    Thank you in advance,

    you need to check the old and the new table structure (use phpmyadmin) for this.

    next you need to convert the old tables to the format of the new tables.

    Learn from how bbpress will create the records inside the tables and import your old data this way.

    I don’t think that there is a tutorial on how to do that (didn’t know that Joomla has a forum module)


    I did it.

    I thought it would be more difficult than it was.

    An old version of joomla and an old forum called joomlaboard.

    I dont know a lot as I m new to all this stuff, doing my internship here.

    Thanks for the tip,

    sometimes for people without experience (like me), it’s difficult to think even this :)
