Converting BBPress to BuddyPress

    @netentry

    I administrate a BBPress forum site and my client now wishes to convert BBPress forums to BuddyPress format.

    I have read many stories about converting BuddyPress to BBPress format, but not vice versa. Are there any good tools for performing a BBPress-to-BuddyPress conversion?

    Please do not ask me why my client wishes to do this. I have tried to talk her out of it. But she is insistent.

    Any guidance from the community?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Best,
    Bill

    @netentry Just to clarify that the only converting we ever did was to import content from the very old stand-alone bbPress 1.x.x versions included in very old BuddyPress installations into the bbPress 2.x.x plugin a long while back. That’s it. BuddyPress itself cannot be converted into bbPress forums.

    Another clarification here. BuddyPress is not a forum. It is a social network plugin with many components which could have Sitewide and/or Group forums if bbPress 2.x.x is installed and activated.

    So in your case, if you only have the bbPress plugin activated, you could install and activate BuddyPress and set it up in the bbPress Settings screen to allow Group forums in addition to the Sitewide Forums. Take note however, that if you activate bbPress and BuddyPress at the same time, the BuddyPress member profile pages will trump (or will show up instead of) the bbPress member profile pages.
