Is there anywhere I can download this importer? I'm running a BBPress that I'm trying to migrate over to SimplePress. All of my users are in Wordpress, I've been running BBPress with the users dependent on the Wordpress. So it's just the forum posts and replies that I'm messing with.

Cool, thank you! I got it. I'll let you know how it works... it is surely better than importing by hand, which is what I was ready to do if necessary (ooof.)

I tried installing this, -- had some problems with a 500 error but fixed that. Now I'm getting a 404. Yikes!

I'm sorry to post three times in a row...

 

I determined why it is giving me a 404. It is trying to bring up this url:

http://thegeekgroup.org/wp-adm.....-admin.php

 

which doesn't fit inside the normal syntax of WP plugins. Simplepress' url in my admin panel is:

 

http://thegeekgroup.org/wp-adm.....forums.php

 

I tried mucking around with changing the url a few different ways, but couldn't quite figure it out. Would love some suggestions!

Yep, and it activated like any other plugin.

 

the only part that may be weird is that I noticed the file structure of the zip file.

 

sp-bbpress.php

and then a folder bbpress2sp

and then in it

.svn (folder)

bbpress2sp-admin.php

bbpress2sp-import.js

bbpress2sp-import.php

 

is that the correct structure?

ya know, andy emailed me that zip file before he left on his trip and I did not look at it... normally, I get it out of svn, but not sure he updated it...

the structure looks right, EXCEPT everything should be in a folder called 'sp-bbpress-importer' which is the directory that should be in plugins and then the files and subdirs...

you can of course, delete the svn stuff as it shouldnt have been included...

Excellent. That did it. It's currently running the script, I assume this is going to take a while since I have a pretty big forum to import. 🙂

 

Thanks!!
