wpForo data migration to phpBB

Post by palkat »

I am looking to return a forum back to phpBB. It is currently running on wpForo for wordpress (by gVectors) and is very small with just under 50 users. This is why I feel it is now the time to migrate it to phpBB before it starts to grow more.

Is there a way/tool to migrate the subs and messages over from wpForo to phpBB, and possibly the users too??

Thank you!

I don’t think there’s anything available here as I see a few similar unanswered requests. I just Google searched ‘convert wpforo to phpBB’ and there’s at least one site offering a conversion service.

Mick's post is still valid (at least one is correct, but I'ld rephrase that to "quite a few"

Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.
