I'm trying to figure out how to convert an existing phpfox community to buddypress in the easiest way possible. I don't want to lose the database. In my opinion, phpfox has so many duplicate content issues, even with the seo plugins that are available. Can anyone offer help as to how one might approach this project? Thanks in advance for the advice.

Others here may be able to provide a much better option. But I would start by trying to do a broad printout of both DBs(possibly a third because I'm not sure how BP and WP overlap). From there see which fields you can get to match up. Then look into writing a script to handle it.

Thanks. I thought there would be more people changing communities to buddypress since duplicate content is such a problem with most CMS scripts. At least that's been my experience. There seems to be more out there explaining how to handle duplicate content issues in Wordpress and how to avoid them. Guess I need a database consultant.
