Migrate from phpBB to BuddyPress

  • Hello, I have a phpBB forum (3.0.10) running for years with many members and existing discussions. Now I want to move from phpBB to the build-in forum of BuddyPress. I have been searching for this but no approriate solution.

    There is an article about migrating from phpBB to bbPress http://wpmu.org/how-to-migrate-a-phpbb-forum-to-wordpress-and-bbpress/ . This seems to work well. So I am thinking about convert from phpBB >>>bbPress >>> BuddyPress . But I wonder if there is any way to convert from bbPress to BuddyPress? As I know, BuddyPress us bbPress as an build-in forum and there is no option to move from bbPress from BuddyPress by nature….

    Please any suggestion for me? Thank you in advance,

    I would suggest that you stick with the bbPress2.+ plugin as it works well with BuddyPress 1.5.4 – we’re lucky that JJJ is the Lead Developer for both plugins.

    The current BuddyPress Group Forums (with own custom bbPress 1.0) will be migrated to bbPress plugin sometime BP 1.6

    I can see in the forum wizard of BuddyPress 1.5.4, there are 2 options: Forums for Groups and Site Wide Forums. Do you mean to suggest me to choose the Site Wide Forums?

    Yeah, I did that and things seem to be good except I can not see the Forums page displayed on the menu (even I can see things are working though Admin panel). When I try to access the forum pages manually by entering their URLs, the links are broken. What am I missing here?
