Thinking for switching from phpBB
Hey everyone. I run a PhpBB forum right now that has a decent amount of activity. But it’s an older install of phpBB 2 and I’m looking to update the site in general. It’s looking and feeling really old. The internet and the way people use it has sort of changed since my community first went up and I’m looking to do something new with it.
I don’t want it to just be a message board anymore. I’m looking to turn it into a small social network where members can stay more connected and even start their own blogs. So I’m looking at Buddypress as I use wordpress on several of my other personal sites.
But I’m curious, is there a way to take my members and phpBB message posts and bring them into a new buddypress installation? I kinda like the messageboard here and wouldn’t mind giving up the phpBB to switch to it. I just don’t want to lose all the old messageboard posts and make my members sign up all over again.
