Moving BBPress forum from one existing WordPress site to another?

  • # April 14, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    Hi Guys,

    Anyone got a good grasp on BBPress database structure or be able to give me advice.

    I run a site: and for a while now our forums have been hosted at, but it has come time to roll them back into the one site.

    At least so I don’t have to maintain two code bases but also so I can allow to logged in users to access other features.

    I have set up local installs of each site and made sure that the set up is exactly the same.

    When ever I use the WordPress exporter and importer I get all the Forums and the replies but no topics (I’ve tried several times with different exports).

    I can import the Forums, Replies and Topics as seperate XML files, but then they aren’t linked.

    I’ve tried doing it on a database level (just importing tables I need) but this over writes all my existing details?

    Any ideas? Or solutions?

    Thanks a lot
