Terrific. I'd like to clarify several issues though:

  • I notice that for "post_author" you have inserted "1" here, though on the sample topics and replies, the name comes through as "First Last". I presume that for the import I would have first and last names within the csv topics and replies, and perhaps my own name as the "post author" at the point of forum definitions. The upload file might contain a good number of posts by multiple authors. Do authors need to be uploaded with any meta information such as email addresses, etc. in a separate upload file?
  • The post_date format includes an indication of time of the post as well. In my case, I do not have that information, but have M/DD/YYYY formatted post dates. I presume that this is sufficient. I notice that you have two date formats in these files with both m/dd/yyyy and yyyy-mm-d included -- so I presume that bbPress can handle either of these.

This is all very helpful and much appreciated. Steve Iman sciman at csupomona dot edu
