Wordpress forum? You mean a plugin you used to create a board inside of Wordpress?
Please provide us the name of the plugin and we might be able to help you. :)

No one has written a convertor for Simple:Press to phpBB. You will need to write one or have someone write one for you. You can start with the phpBB2 to phpBB3 convertor and modify it to fit the Simple:Press database tables and files or make a convertor of your own design.

The convertor comes with the phpBB3 package available on the Downloads page. Look in the install/convertors folder and you will see two files, convert_phpbb20.php and functions_phpbb20.php. Copy those two files and rename them to something like convert_spf.php and functions_spf.php and work on those two files.
