Convert Wordpress forum to phpBB

Post by stayalive »

Sorry to jump in here but I have a question for a friend of mine who runs a wordpress forum and is trying to switch to phpbb, he has managed to get all the members over but is having difficulty is getting all the posts over, it seems that the forums transfer ok but without any posts? does anyone know of a way this can be done ? or is it not possible?

If they contact me I could take a look -- have they tried the SQL here: http://the-unsane.com/2012/converting-s ... to-phpbb3/

It might be worth using that, but deleting anything to do with user migration, then use WP-United to import WordPress users into phpBB. If you do that, there should be no need for them to reset their passwords; password hashes are broadly compatible (with a few changes and caveats).
