Unable to move forum and topics to new site

  • MrShawnTierney


    Good afternoon BBPress community,

    I’m moving an existing site to a new install, and have successfully exported and imported most of the site.

    But when I get to BBPress I run into a problem importing the Topics. The built-in WordPress importer says it was successful, BUT no topics show up in the forum or in the dashboard.

    Any ideas?

    Is BBPress not compatible with WordPress’s built-in Import and Export routines? This would be quite strange as several free plugins I use work fine, so I’m guessing there is a workaround?

    Thanks in advance for your help,

  • Hi, do you see the topics in the backend ( /wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=topic ) ? Did you run the repairs (one at a time) from Tools>Forums ( /wp-admin/tools.php?page=bbp-repair ) ?

    If you have run the repairs and still have issues, please give us some info on previous and new site like WordPress version, bbPress version, etc.
