Hi,One more question about DWQA pro.I have a WordPress website which is working with bbPress. My client asked me if it is possible to \”convert\” their bbPress forum to a DWQA site.I\’m thinking about do SQL replacements in the post table. Something like:
UPDATE `prefix_posts` SET `post_type` = REPLACE( `post_type` , \'topic\', \'dwqa-question\' );UPDATE `prefix_posts` SET `post_type` = REPLACE( `post_type` , \'reply\', \'dwqa-answer\' );
But I\’m not sure if there is anything can be missing by above code. Do you have any suggestion about this? I will do it myself, just need some suggestion from your tech/support team. Thank you in advance!

Hi Dominic,
Just want to give you an update.
This plugin – my-bbpress-to-dw-qa-converter has not be updated for so long and it reports PHP error, does not work at first time.
I had to did a lot of extra work, including commit out the error PHP lines, fix some paras in some function…. Luckily most of it’s functions are good and I finally got it worked on my site. Now I closed my bbPress and runing DWQA for my client.
Thank you!
