Re: Existing bbpress to buddypress



Is this recommended over the “Forums Setup -> Use an existing bbPress installation” import?

I tried it, and for the life of me I can’t get it right. Not right enough anyhow. I installed a clean bbPress, added two forums, populated them with about two threads each. Then I try BP’s magic button. The config was successful it says, and I go check it out. The best I’ve gotten is one group with the threads from one of my forums, while I’ve no clue where the threads in the other forum went. I’ve tried this over and over with different settings. Just not getting there.

Since adding additional users to bbPress is a pain I haven’t gotten around to doing that yet, so I don’t know yet if users would import properly, or if that’s a problem too.

Is it just me or does the bbPress importer leave a lot to be desired?
