I have 10 forums. How do I merge them all into 1? I.e. I need all of my topics to be in 1 forum.

I can run these mysql updates:

UPDATE wp_wpforo_posts
SET forumid = 11

and

UPDATE wp_wpforo_topics
SET forumid = 11

...but is there usermeta that would need updating, too?

From the forum dashboard you can just delete the unwanted forums and transfer the content to the forum you want to keep

And of course make a site backup before doing such drastic actions.
