I don't think there is a converter for WP to SMF.
"This is really a generic concept about human thinking - when faced with large tasks we're naturally inclined to try to break them down into a bunch of smaller tasks that together make up the whole."

"A 500 error loosely translates to the webserver saying, "WTF?"..."

I am interested in this as well. So only manual method is available? Maybe there is a detailed tutorial regarding this? thanks.

Well, I don't think there is any tutorial either...

after all, WordPress is a blog system - SMF is a forum system. They are two different concepts and data models, right from the start.

Which is not to say that it can't be done...  just that I don't think anyone has ever done it (or documented it if they did)
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
