Recently I created a bbPress based forum site for a group that had been using a private Blogger blog as a sort of pseudo-forum. I wanted to import the previous Blogger discussions into the new site but quickly discovered that, while you can import Blogger posts to WordPress, there was no existing way to convert those imported posts and comments to bbPress posts and replies. So, I created my own WordPress plugin to do the conversion for me. Check it out on github. I haven’t added it to WordPress.org since it is still fairly rough and doesn’t include any sort of error checking. It is usable though – just download the posttobb.php file from github, move it to your WordPress plugins directory, activate, and use the importer which is under the Tools menu.
