    Hey guys

    I need to know if there is a forum plugin that I can use on my wordpress site in order to import my scraped posts/comments/q&a's...

    Also, if I can then sort this out into relevant categories

    well, I don't know if anything like this exists, but if you can scrape and format the forum posts, comments and q&a's properly, it's pretty easy to write a script for the importing process..

    Thanks, yes I can create a csv with headers such as topic, post1, post2 etc.

    how do i then import this into a forum plugin (I was thinking of using forum server or asgaros) but there is no import feature?

    Try one of these:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-ultimate-csv-importer/
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/csv-importer/

    You will need to do a bit of formatting on the CSV first though.

    I've found a forum plugin that I can create new topics from the editors menu, also I've found an rss importer that imports into pages. Does anyone know how I can get that option into the forum post option? It's hard to explain so please see the screenshots:
