making bbPress (and WordPress) work better!

BBXF cross-forum import/export program

BBXF is a fascinating idea. What if you could easily import or export your forums between any programs like vBulletin/phpBB/SMF/bbPress? For blogs is this fairly straightforward and already exists. But forums are much more complex than blogs. bbPress doesn’t have any of the typically native forum features like polls,user tracking, local avatars, signatures or attachments – it’s all done via plugins. So the question is, what happens to all that data between programs? Importing into bbPress you could just shove it all into meta and hope to manipulate it into place later (good luck with that). Exporting you’d essentially lose all that data.

So unless you have a very plain forum setup or don’t mind losing lots of related data, it’s never going to work very well is it? Still, it could rescue people who are stuck with forum software that is no longer supported or from commercial software they can no longer afford or justify paying for. We’ll see what happens over time.
