#2127 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Imported phpBB 'Global Stickies' have invalid forum id

Reported by: netweb's profile netweb Owned by: netweb's profile netweb
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.2
Component: API - Importers Keywords:


Issue: Importing topics using the phpBB converter that are assigned as a 'Global Sticky' are not assigned to a standard phpBB forum, they are assigned globally to phpbb_topics.forum_id = 0

Solution: When importing topics from phpBB reassign any phpbb_topics.forum_id = 0 to a default/primary forum for bbPress that does not equal zero. eg. phpbb_topics.forum_id = 1

Does this actually break anything? Topics without forums should still work, and appear in the topics list. Correct?

#2 @netweb

Correct, nothing is broken, the topic does exist and functions as expected for a topic and is shown in wp-admin -> Topics as '(No Forum)'

  • Milestone 2.6 deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Topics do not need to have a forum and this is standard bbPress behaviour.

Closing as wontfix, if this becomes an issue for anyone for some reason feel free to re-open and add it to the 'Awaiting Review' milestone so we see it.
