I'm looking for a way to migratie a bbPress forum to post & replies. Why you ask? Well... the use of a forum in this case is an overkill. And I want to get rid of it. It's a bad apple from the past.

bbPress   migrate to   Wordpress
forums       >         category
topics       >         post
replies      >         comments

Is this possible without SQL queries and such? If not... is this straight forward when I give a programmer the task to migrate?

I'm just trying to find my bearings here. Maybe there is some crazy tool out there that I don't know about.

Cheers, Paul
