In order to check that a migration of the forum content is possible, I’ve done a full import of the current fluxBB based OSM forum to a Discourse test instance during the week-end (21 hours for the whole process).
The result can be seen on http://freebox.computel.fr:4200/
In addition to the script based migration, I’ve done a few things:
- reorganized the categories to match more or less the ones in the current forum to minimize the changes,
- recreated sticky posts in topics,
- fixed some problems with quotes which should now appear properly.
Have a look at it and do not hesitate to report strange things.
Of course, the last posts are not there because the database dump has been done by @TomH a few days ago and it is note connected “live” to the actual forum.
Login is not functional at this stage.
