  3. Asgaros to wpForo
  4. AnsPress to wpForo
  5. DW Q&A to wpForo
  6. WP Q&A to wpForo
  7. phpBB to wpForo
  8. MyBB to wpForo
  9. SMF to wpForo

1. You plan in the future to make imports of the big forum engines, such as XENFORO?
Currently we only work on WP forum plugin migration options. I'm sorry but we have no plan for XenForo in near future. We have lot to do with wpForo, we don't have appropriate time for that yet.
2. Where can I read instructions for use Go2wpForo?

Go2wpForo tool is a simple WordPress plugin, after activation you need just navigate to Go2wpForo Menu and choose the migration option, then click on Start button. That's it. It'll migrate all data without any extra steps. I attached screenshot.

If i migrate Asgaros Forum to your system forums with already topics, this migration erased this messages ? Or will be added automatically ?

Go2wpForo migrates all forums, topics, posts to wpForo, it doesn't delete any data. You'll get the same forum on wpForo. If you already got some data in wpForo, they'll stay intact. Nothing will be deleted.

Powered by gVectors Team. our popular plugins:
wpForo, wpDiscuz

Yes you can. Just backup all tables, then read this doc:

Hi Is there a way to use this tool to convert my existing post comments to forum discussions?  I have some posts that have lengthy comments that I would like to migrate to the forum for discussions.

I'm sorry but this tool doesn't have such option. I'd recommend this guy, they have a reasonable "blog to forum" and "forum to forum" migration services:

I am trying to transfer BBpress to WPforo, but everytime I click on "Start Migration" it logs me off the site and even if I log back still does the same, just logs me off. I have the latest BBpress 2.5.10 and Wordpress 4.6.1,

Thanks

I remember seeing a plugin that converts comments into bbpress replies. You can then migrate that to wpforo using the tool go2wpforo. Two step process but if you really want this, this is one option.

Hi all!

I have tried this tool for my existing bbPress installation. When I click in converter menu BBPRESS I see only statistics page and nothing else. What I to do wrong? (All software versions are latest)

Thanks!

Please open a separate topic in bbPress Migration forum and leave some screenshot, there should be a button [Start Migration].
