[SOLVED] Importing From BuddyPress to Vanilla via the Porter Plugin
I'm looking for a little help regarding importing my forum from BP into Vanilla using @todd
's porter plugin.
I had assumed it would be fairly straight forward but it has not been.
I realize that technically the Porter works with bbPress not BuddyPress but imo its should be essay enough to get it to work for both.
Here is the error message I am getting when I try
Missing required database tables: users
It look to me like the problem is that BP uses two table prefixes and stead of one. In my case they are wp_bb_ and .
The Vanilla Porter unfortunately only allows for one table prefix to be entered.
If I enter wp_bb I get this error - Missing required database tables: users and if I use wp_ I get - Missing required database tables: forums, posts, topics, meta.
So I'm thinking if I could get both prefixes into the porter it would work.
Am I right on this?
If so what needs to be done to get that one extra table prefix recognized by the porter?
I'll be honest I am at just about at the limit of my ability in terms of solving this on my own.
Is there any chance one of you with the ability could whip up a hacked modified version of the the Porter tool?
Alternatively if this is already been done can someone please tell where I can get a copy? I have searched all over the interwebs for a solution but without any luck. Also, if there is an other solution please do let me know.
Thanks in advance for any help people can offer me.
