Hi,

Is there a way to migrate straight from SMF2.x forum to wpForo?

I have a rather large SMF forum with a database around 250Mb and would like to move away from SMF as it is increasingly unreliable and I am repairing the database almost on a monthly basis.

Our website is on wordpress and has been very stable. It makes sence moving forward to goto a Wordpress based forum.

 

Thanks.

I am thinking of same and migrating to WPForo from an existing 2.13 SMF. 

I am not aware of any tools or plugins to complete the migration but did receive a quote from migrate-forum.com which I am considering. Seems reasonable but is only small forum in comparison as only been running a year.

wpForo is under active development and we spend our time on essential wpForo features, performance and security. We'll take a look on new migration options after 1.5.x release.

Currently you can check one of these paid options:

We'd really appreciate and be thankful if you leave a good review on plugin page. This is the best way to say thank you to this project and support team.

We just released Go2wpForo Migration Tool 2.0.0 version. It already supports SMF to wpForo migration: https://wpforo.com/docs/root/migrate-to-wpforo/

Ask me if I would upgrade the last SMF version 2.0.15 to wpForo
Everything works well until step 3.
Database connection, okay, but I get this error message:

"Migrate2wpForo Notice: We can't find this board on this system"

What's wrong with me?

 

-edit-

I managed to solve the problem
