Migration Module

Forums migration:

There are 2 types of Forums in bbPress:

  • Forum
  • Category

Both types can have child Forums (with 2 types also).

  • Forum with "forum" type without children forums will be migrated as Forum (migrate content/title + metadata both).
  • Forum with "category" type without children will be migrated as Forum Category (migrate title/content to tax title/content) + Forum (migrate content/title + metadata both).
  • Both forum types with children forums will be migrated as Forum Category (migrate title/content to tax title/content) + Forum (migrate content/title + metadata both). Also, children forums will be assigned to the migrated Forum Category.

Topics migration:

All topics will be migrated with the same data as in bbPress. Topic tags will be migrated if the option for using topic tags is active in ForumWP (ForumWP Settings > Topics > Topic Tags). The topics' connections to the forums will be saved.

Replies migration:

All replies will be migrated with the same data as in bbPress. Please pay attention to the nesting level of replies. There is a pre-defined 2-nesting-level in ForumWP replies (Reply > Sub-reply > Subsub-reply). But the bbPress plugin supports 10-nesting-level for the replies. Therefore, after the migration, you will receive the replies, that were nested at the deeper levels of nesting in bbPress, nested in the last connected reply at the 2nd level in ForumWP. The details you could see on the image below.

The replies' connections to the topics and the forums will be saved.
