Or you can use professional forum migration services:
That's funny Robert I was juts looking at that .. Phpbb to bbpress THEN bbpress to Wpforo..
I can do that on my own so thanks ..
It may be easier though if I just start fresh with WPforo and manually move posts over since there are only 50 posts and mostly just me talking to myself (as I build out the main Directory).. the Post DATES are my only issue.. really wanted to keep those..
Working on a City Site
But going to look so much better just having the form intergrated with my main theme using WPForo
Thank You !
I'll check out the addons and also make a Paypal donation (link please) ..this is really the first Wordpress Forum Plugin that actually impressed me..yes so much more you can add to it but even as it is many thumbs up !
@bidawinner You are better off directly going to wpforo instead of via bbpress.
After converting from bbpress to wpforo, even if you reset bbpress (which is supposed to completely remove all bbpress content) and later deactivate and delete bbpress plugin, it still leaves the content in your wp_posts table. This might make your wordpress installation sluggish especially if you are trying to move a bigger forum like me.
Thanks Sam.. yeah I went ahead and manually moved everything..That's what I was thinking as well..once to bbpress then I still have a lot of clean up to do..
Anyway I think I have it roughly how I want it .. it's coming along

We use the free core wpForo plugin here. There is no any addon installed in this community. So you see a regular link instead of tumbnails. Please read wpForo file attachment doc:
