Hi! 

I have a list of questions in an Excel sheet and I want to mass import them in a specific forum. All questions/topics will have admin as author/topic starter. I tried to import them using "WP Import Export Lite" plugin, by choosing to import them as topic post type... the plugin told me the import was successful but I could not see the questions in the forum. How can I fix that? Is there a better way to import topics from excel file into wpForo forums? 

Regards,

Hi,

wpforo doesn't use Wordpress posts type so that doesn't work at all. wpForo has its own db tables.

Thanks @dimalifragis for your reply! What do you think may be a solution to bulk import topics/questions in wpForo forums? The csv/excel file has only one column: the list of topics/questions...

@dcelest you can use VBA in Excel if you know how to program.
