    Hi Lavish,
    My apologies in advance.
    We have no plans to create any migrator for BP Album or BuddyPress media(RT media). They are not worth the effort.

    These plugins have very convoluted schema/code making it difficult to understand their data schema.

    If someone is interested, we will help on the MediaPress side of the things(How to add media to MediaPress) but that’s all. you will need to find a developer to do the rest.

    Thank you

    Thank you for the quick reply Brajesh!

    So, I will try and find a developer to do this work, if you can recommend someplace to go, please do.

    Also, I am not sure but what if I upload the photos via ftp (bp album has individual folders for each user) and somehow mimic the database entries to display the images in MediaPress created user galleries. I am not sure what I am saying is even possible but just trying to think of a way to do it.

    Thanks for the help 🙂
