#2596 new feature request

Add support for bbPress converter to import attachments

Component: API - Importers Keywords:


It would be great if we could also importing attachments from other forums as part of the import/convert process.

There are numerous challenges to implementing this:

  • Timeouts fetching remote files due to file availability or size
  • Forward/Backward compat for any future bbPress attachment implementations

A couple of ideas to be researched is the 2013 GSoC project by Frederick Ding and the WordPress WXR importer, WordPress' Tumblr importer and WP-CLI implementations.

I have a MyBB forum that I can't migrate to BBpress because BBpress importer does not import the attachments into Wordpress... please support

  • Priority changed from normal to highest
  • Severity changed from normal to major
  • Type changed from enhancement to feature

Please add support of attachments import from MyBB 1.8. Otherwise it's pointless to convert, too many data gets lost.
