Migrating & Merging Mobile App Forums

Hey guys, this is something we’ve discussed many times in the past and.. what can I say. It’s close to our hearts.

To recap, the plan of action was to…

  • Collect all threads and rooms within each of the apps forums (ex.: ios.forums.wordpress.org). I know @nacin had made some progress on this.
  • Create a new subforum here on WordPress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ titled “Mobile Apps” or similar.
  • Import each forum as a sub-forum of “Mobile Apps”
  • Mobile group to manually go through and add cross-platform threads (like FAQs, the pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party blacklist, general how-tos).

If I remember correctly we figured we could start with a forum that has extremely low traffic to see how that goes, say the Nokia app’s forum (an app that’s in hibernation).

What do you think? Does this fit in on the road map?
