Hello friends

I have a wpforo on a site1.com and I would like to take only the forum to another (new installation) place sitie2.com

Is it possible to do that? Migrate from one site to others, but only the forum (about 3 thousand posts)

First you should install a fresh wpForo on sitie2.com.

Make sure the 1 and 2 websites table prefix is the same (e.g.: wp_ )

Then backup wpForo tables with DROP TABLE command (all tables with wpforo_ secondary prefix, e.g.: wp_wpforo_... ) from sitie1.com and import to sitie2.com database.

If the target WP ( sitie2.com ) has more than one user you can't do this migration. You should ask Migration Services. UserIDs are unique, and you can't import sitie1.com website users to sitie2.com website users table. If you can't migrate users then forum can not be migrated too. wpForo is based on WordPress users table. if you move wpForo tables to new WordPress website the user IDs will be changed. The easiest why to migrate wpForo tables with _users and _usermeta table. In this case you just need to migrate tables, and all will work fine, but the WordPress admin login details will be changed to sitie1.com admin login details.

However this is not a simple task. Forum to Forum database migration services provided by specialized teams like ProfProject or gConverter.

@robert Hello,

I followed the instructions you said and tried to do a clean install. It partially worked but it has some issues as there are no users. Below are the links to the main website and the migrated website. I ask for your support in this matter. If the match here is User ID, that's a problem, but if it's email, I believe it would work great.

Moved Website: https://v4.turkishexportpartner.com/community/

Thank you

@t-niron,

There is no support for this kind of manipulation. This is out of all kinds of support. It may cost you even hundreds of dollars to finish, because this is a heavy job and you should find some developer.

@robert Hello,

We discussed this among ourselves and decided that it could not be done. We will continue with a different interface.

thank you

Hello,

I need some help on this. I followed these instructions but without success. We redesigned our website and did this without importing anything. Now we want to migrate forum posts, but we can't. It seems strange to us that you don't have an import and export option.

Thank you

Hi,

This is not something easy that can be done with forum posts exchange. Unfortunatelly.
