Hey, I’m moving a ton of content over from my old (proprietary) forum software to a new Discourse forum.
I’m not a Ruby coder so I couldn’t really start with the example import scripts provided by Discourse… it’s just not a good solution for me. So I’m just calling the API to handle all the steps.
The problem is I’m running into a lot of issues along the way… rate limiting, mostly, but also issues with repeated forums, getting the message content through all the “reality checks” (for example: minimum post length, which I finally figured out to change to ‘1’ in the settings).
Is there any other/better option? Can I somehow push data into the database directly, or …?
