Moving from BBPress 2.0
I currently run a fairly large forum (9,000 users) on BBPress 2.0 and I am migrating over to Vanilla. I need to keep the users on Wordpress, for various things, but I am using SSO.
I am trying to import the old forum posts into Vanilla and I find myself perplexed. I found the exporter, but it only uses BBpress 1.0 -- I tried it for kicks and it just errors out, "no topics, no replies".
I think I could export the forum topics manually but I'm not sure how I'd go about importing them. Would I have to somehow automatically generate all of the existing users on Vanilla? Since they don't have a userID if they've never logged in, right?
I've spent a good three hours researching this tonight and I'm at a little lost. this is my last step and I'd really like to go forward. I don't mind getting my hands dirty but I need a little direction.
