Front End Description

I had created the WordPress theme and phpBB skin a few years ago. I created the bbPress theme based on the already in place WordPress theme and a custom bbPress theme that I use for all clients.

Back End Description

After some issues with phpBB, the client decided it was time to migrate to bbPress. I created an import script and then imported the data and users. I also suggested the client consider some spam plugins to block spam bots (which has yet to be installed).

Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts

With thousands of spam user registrations and posts – migrating the data post cleanup would be highly recommended and much faster. This is something I am definitely going to recommend next time around.
