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

You could do it yourself using the following plugin, though if you have 1,000's it may be beneficial to use SQL queries.

bbPress Topic to Post Converter (Here's the specific code)

  • apparently it's broken under 3.8... wel the functionality is not visible in the dashboard.
