Hope to hear you guys soon!
Keep up the good work !
At the moment we don't have migration tool for phpBB. But you can find some recommendations here:
Thx for the reply - but there stops my migration train because at this moment you can't migrate phpbb3 3.2 to bbpress with the latest version of bbpress. To pay hundreds of dollars for the migration service is not an option with a small website. Fingers crossed and hope you guys make a migration tool soon.
Love WPForo concept #keepupthegoodwork
Ok, I see you. I'll let our team to work on Go2wpForo tool and add phpBB migration option as soon as possible.
We got some problem in Go2wpForo tool. The tool was designed for WordPress forum plugins. phpBB is a stand-alone forum. We have to care about file attachments, bbCode and separate user database. So this is the reason why we didn't finished migration tool. We might release a light version in a few weeks. Which will only convert users, forums, topics and posts. phpBB attachments are encrypted and saved without extensions. You should copy all attachment files and past in certain folder of WordPress before starting migration.
In other words there are many extra changelings in stand-alone forum migration process and takes more time.
It has been finished about two month ago. Unfortunately we didn't find time to test it and work on User interface. I'll ask our developers to take a look on this. Probably we'll add it here for public download by end of this week.
We were working on just released 1.5.2 version. We'll release Go2wpForo tool with phpBB migration support within a few days.
Still running circles of joy #gettingtired 😉
Please do not do this. This doesn't affect the time of release. Just be sure, that we're doing our best to release that version.
