    Hey there, glad to see this mod exits and thank you for making it. However, it seems this is a bit outdatted. Are there any plans to update it to support phpbb 3.10 and bbpress 2.1?

    Additionally, I am a bit of a noob and some of these area conused me when trying to fill out the information:

    "Source server prefix" <- what is that?
    "Source server upload path" <- Do you mean where my phpbb forum is located?
    "Source server avatar path" <- Do you mean where my phpbb form avatars are located?

    Again, great mod and thank you for taking the time to do this.

    Source server prefix is basically the table prefix used by your source software. e.g. phpBB will typically use phpbb_

    Source server upload path is where the uploads (attachments, etc) are stored.

    Source server avatar path - you got it.

    BTW, I have tried to use forumconverter a few times, and it didn't work out for me. I've had more luck with bbconverter http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bbconverter/

    I got ForumConverter to convert a phpBB 3.0.9 install to bbPress 2.2.3 by adding the bbPress version number to line 33:

    if (!in_array($dbver, array('110',   //2.0-rc-2, 2.0-beta-3, 2.0-beta-3b
                                                        '155',   //2.0-rc-3
                                                        '165',   //2.0-rc-4
                                                        '200',    //2.0 final
                                                        '223'    // ADD THIS
                                                        )))

    and removing three sets of references to the blog_id field which was removed in WP 3.4... the result should look like this:

    $status = $wpdb->insert($wpdb->prefix.'options',
      array( //'blog_id'      => 0,   // note commented blog_id here...
                                                               'option_name'  => '_bbp_super_sticky_topics',
                                                               'option_value' => $data,
                                                               'autoload'     => 'yes'
                                                    ),
      array( //'%d',//blog_id  // .... and comment here too
                                                               '%s',//option_name
                                                               '%s',//option_value
                                                               '%s' //autoload
                                                    )
                                            );
