Severity: normal Version: trunk
Component: API - Importers Keywords:
Cc: momo360modena


Introduce Forum Importer template for use with importing from PunBB v1.4.x (Tested on v1.4.2)

Working: Forums, Topics & Users

Not Working Yet: Categories, Replies, User Passwords & Custom BBCode for Topic & Reply Content

Attached is the 1st pass patch for PunBB and I hope to get the remaining outstanding items done ASAP.
(User passwords will be a little trickier and will take a bit more time)

  • Topics
  • Replies
  • User Nice Name 'user_nicename' & Display Name 'user_displayname' import fields
  • User PunBB MSN


  • Forum/Category hierarchy (currently parent forums/categories are imported 'flat')
  • User Passwords
  • Custom BBCode for Topic & Reply Content

NOTE: If you are importing 'users' during the import you will see multiple instances of the following error message:-

  • Notice: Undefined variable: user_pass in /home/webhost/public_html/wp-includes/user.php on line 1305

This can be ignored and only relates to the current non-working state of converting user passwords. If you need to login (or users login) they will just need to reset their WordPress password to be able to login.
