Wordpress & phpBB Forum - Upgrade / Convert Existing phbBB forum

I am looking to have a Wordpress site set up with a selected theme and SEO plugins installed and ready to go. I want it to run along with the latest phpBB Forum software. The new phpBB Forum must be pre-populated with existing forum data that is currently stored in an older version of the forum. I'd call this an upgrade, but not sure if upgrade is possible or if winning bid would need to do a bit of SQL magic to transfer the data to the new database structure.

The final setup must utilize the forum post title as the URL for that post instead of the old way.

eg: /[login to view URL]

must be


If I haven't given enough information for a full quote, then I expect you to clearly advise what additional information you require. Once I narrow down the freelancers, I will provide a link to the current site so that you can see the forum data.

I am NOT expecting you to populate the new Wordpress site, just set it up properly with all the SEO and other plugins you think I will need.

The current outdated forum has over 13,000 posts and 29,000 users.

Current phpBB Forum Info


Powered by phpBB 2.0.10 © 2001 phpBB Group

phpBB port v2.1 based on Tom Nitzschner's phpbb2.0.6 upgraded to phpBB 2.0.4

I will need you to upgrade and transfer all data from this old version.



I will ONLY contact and consider freelancers that answer the following questions:

1. How many Wordpress setups have you completed?

2. How many phpBB Forum setups have you completed?

3. URL of the best 3 sites YOU have setup or designed

4. How long it will take you to complete (for the cost posted)

If you fail to answer the above, I will simply reject your bid or not consider it.

Please check my buyer reviews to see that I am a good employer. However, please note that I will only pay for a finished project and will NOT pay for milestones unless they are actual milestones that allow me to easily continue with another freelancer if needed.

Thank you

bbPress Forum??

I've also been looking at bbPress (wordPress Forum) and it looks good and clean. But worry that migrating the data from existing phpBB forum would be to difficult?

But this is an option if you think this is the best way to go? Give me your expert opinions and thoughts!


The final winning bid will need to upgrade the forum and content to XenForo and integrate XPress (wordPress) plugin for XenForo
