Botched SMF > WpForo migration issues
.. General Discussion board on SMF somehow becomes a category.. I noticed after importing that all the topics/posts were imported.. but the main board for it was missing.. in the database changing the is_cat to 0 and setting ;parentid to actual parent board brings it back.. but overall it didn't put things in the same category>board order that was on SMF.
so that was fixed.. but not good for import that just works.
the main thing now is getting attachments and avatars to be imported... instructions are unclear...
do the attachment files in smf need to all be in this directory?
and same with the avatars many avatars are in seperate folders in smf ie /avatars/3D-Avatars etc.. so does that mean on migration those files need all be in the
...uploads/wpforo/attachments/ folder or do I move the folders they are in from SMF to that attachment folder?
I've kinda tried different things but nothing works with avatars that are stored on SMF as uploaded ones or attachments.
Also what other addons does wpForo need for avatars or should say what other Wordpress addons work best with wpForo that should be installed aswel.. like buddypresss? etc why is attachments for wpForo an upgrade? is that addon needed for attachments to be imported in from SMF?
