Migrates a phpBB forum into a bbPress forum.
No. The data tables differ for bbPress 2.0.
Maybe. BuddyPress does not support subforums or subgroups making the conversion process non-trivial.
If you check this option, the converter will utilize "BBcode Lite for bbPress" markup. Unchecking this option will make the converter use HTML markup.
This might be phpbb_ depending on your phpBB setup.
This should point to the folder containing your attachments. For phpBB this may be contained in phpBB_InstallationFolder/files. Use backslashes for windows servers or forward slashes for unix or unix like servers.
We do not support BBPress Lite. But it is trivial to bring BBCode Lite up-to-date to support bbPress 2.0.
ForumConverter does not utilize extra tables found in bbPress Attachments plugin and phpBB but rather utilizes wp_posts table itself. Attachments reference their topic or posts ID in that same table.
You can modify the source code to place that user in a different user permission.
The plugin will delete existing bbPress 2.0 posts, replies, and post meta. In addition, it may do destructive conversion of users if it encounters an already existing WordPress user.
If you are using password protected forums or phpBB password features do not deactivate this plugin to ensure that phpBB password protected forums and phpBB login passwords work properly.
With version 1.03 you can disable the conversion module and then activate the
Before 1.03, Any user with a phpBB account will use the phpBB username and password.
If your using 1.03, merged users with existing WordPress accounts must use the same WordPress username and password with the phpBB username lost in the conversion if a email match is found. Any account that failed to match a WordPress username, or email will need to use the phpBB username and password.
Make sure you activate bbPress before you do the conversion. If this doesn't work you may try to disable the check in the source code yourself.
You need to increase your PHP script timeout period longer. PHP kills a script after a certain amount of time. Modify the source code and set set_time_limit to a higher value so that the conversion completes for slower CPUs. Also there is a similar limit for MySQL also that needs to be adjusted to prevent mysql server from timing out.
