Hello!

I am currently using Buddyboss however have seen WPforo and quite like the look of it. Since BuddyBoss is a fork of BBpress, I have used the migration here https://wpforo.com/docs/wpforo-v2/migrate-to-wpforo/ to migrate the forums from Buddyboss to WPforo and it worked fine as you can see here: https://staging.blendermania3d.com/community/blendermania-abstract-attack-contest/blendermania-contest-62-pirate/#post-15715

However as you can see there are no images that have been transferred. Here is the forum on my original site with Buddyboss with the images: https://www.blendermania3d.com/groups/blendermania-contests/forum/topic/blendermania-contest-62-pirate/

How can I migrate the images from Buddyboss to Wpforo? I have tried this here: https://wpforo.com/community/bbpress/migrate-bbpress-attachments-to-wpforo/

However it didn't work as this is for the GD bbPress Attachments plugin. When I did the step "Check the database table and make sure you got prefix_mg2wpforo table. Make sure it's not empty." I didn't find any database table with that name. Again I assume it's because this is for the GD BBpress attachments plugin which I didn't use as the images were uploaded directly with BuddyBoss. So how do I go about transferring the images from BuddyBoss to WPforo?

Thanks!

Hi @blenderman,

I'm sorry but we cannot help you as we don't have solution for Buddy Boss Attachments migration.

We can only recommend to contact with gConverter or ProfProjects services for a custom migration.

Hey @chris thanks for the quick reply. I have contacted Gconverter to see with them. However on this page of the migration with the migration plugin I see "Full path to BBPRESS attachments folder" If I put the path here to the images, wouldn't that add the images back to the forum? My question is, where do I find the path for my images if they are hosted on amazons3 as you can see here from the urls of the images? What would I put in the path name?

@blenderman,

If you are not going to use Amazon after the migration, you can download the file and set the path based on that.

If you're going to use Amazon after the migration, you can leave the field empty, that should work, but we cannot say for 100% as it's migration, and the result can be different. Please note that migration result and issues are out of our support. An option is to contact with Gvectors Custom work team with sale[at]gvectors.com email, and request for a Custom Migration.

Thank you @chris for the reply. I will be going with gconverter for the migration but I have another question, With the advanced attachments addon, is there a way to change the embed image size so that it is bigger when it's embeded? See attachment for details

@blenderman,

Please ask that question at Gvectors Advanced Attachment's addon forum, we don't provide addons support here, only main wpForo plugin support.
