Mirgration from discourse to forem

Hi. Thanks for your tutorials on installing Forem, thanks to them it was possible to install on digitalocean.

I have several projects, they use wordpress and discourse. There is a desire to mirgate to Forem, but there is no solution yet. Maybe someone from this community will take on this job? Or someone was doing a similar task. Let me know please

There were such discussions on the official Forem community and the answer by Akhil Naidu. https://forem.dev/akhil/comment/26n

Hey, this is Akhil!

Also, the migration depends on what you want to migrate.

  1. If you wanna migrate blog posts (you can)
  2. If it is some other kind of SQL data, you can't, until Forem team creates a relation database between Forem and your another project.

Hey, Akhil!

If we talks about wordpress, i need migrate blog posts:

  • Title, cover image and article content
  • Url and SEO metatags (title and description)

For discourse:

  • Users who have 1 or more post or comment
  • Posts + comments
  • Post and comments images

Is it possible to migrate this information to Forem?

Check about RSS and canonical URL in dev.to related to wordpress.

In case of discourse, nothing can be migrated, at least for now.
