I have been designing and developing a WordPress-based website for the past 6 months. I am using both bbPress and BuddyPress, and I need help migrating an existing forum CMS (SMF) into the WordPress ecosystem. I have most of it figured out, but there are a few tables of data from SMF that bbPress's built in importer tool doesn't support. I have all of the details, websites files, and databases on my local setup.
If you have experience manually migrating tables of the same type of data from one CMS to another (both in MySQL), please let me know.
This data includes: (1) private messages, (2) like/dislike votes on comments plugin, (3) thread view counts, (4) avatars, (5) signatures, (6) stickied topics, and (7) posts from users who deleted their accounts on SMF which all get reattributed into the WP admin account after the import process is completed (confusing, but I can explain in super clear detail).
Numbers 1, 2 and 3 are by far the most important. 7 would be great, but I could...
