[Resolved] Move from U Buddypress Forum Attachments to GD bbPress Attachments
has anybody here successfully moved from
to GD bbPress Attachments?
I am trying to move from buddypress legacy group forums to the new bbpress buddypress forums and U BuddyPress Forum Attachments are lost that way :/
So I would need to somehow transform the database entries for attachments from one software to another but don’t have a clue right now how to do this…
Any ideas or experiences?
U BuddyPress Forum Attachments is not compatible with WordPress bbPress plugin, it was made for standalone bbPress 1.0. Converting attachments from it to my plugin is very complicated, and I don’t plan on implementing it.
We were stuck in bbpress 1.o on our BuddyPress install because of the U Forum Attachments plugin, so we had this built so we could move to bbPress 2.x and the GD Forum Attachments plugin.
Worked like a charm for us.
Wow, thanks a lot. Worked for me as well and made me very happy since I was now able to upgrade buddypress without any issues 😀
Just one thing to note, as I found out afterwards, you need to keep U Forum Attachments plugin installed and active for the “Legacy Attachments” to continue working – otherwise you will receive a “file not found” error.
Might be worth mentioning in the readme 🙂
All the best and again, thank you sooo very much!
That’s odd. That hasn’t been our experience. I’ve deactivated the U forum plugin and the files are still there.
Is it a specific file type you are having issues with?
I investigated my previous steps and redid it all. The results below. For now for the lazy, the process works and works well – I am really grateful for the plugin! Doing everything like in the readme works great!
However, I did not stop there 😉
Deactivating the old U BuddyPress Forum Attachment plugin indeed as you suggested works.
However, deinstalling the old U BuddyPress Forum Attachment plugin leads to file not found errors. Maybe the readme could advise against this as for a non-programmer like me, removing and deactivating a plugin were nearly identical 😉
Reinstalling the old U BuddyPress Forum Attachment plugin afterwards makes it even worse. After clicking on Download the page reloads without an error but no file is served :/
Just for completion – deactivating your migration plugin is also not a good idea, since then the attachments vanish again 😉 Maybe it could be mentioned in the readme that this needs to be permanently active?
In any case, wonderful work – really, really appreciated and works really well <3
