I'm upgrading a site from D5 to D7 and have a large amount of forum posts. However, I no longer want to use the core forum module, instead using views...
When I disable the module, I lose access to the "Forum Post" content type that the module creates. Also, Drupal doesn't have "ownership" of the "Forums" taxonomy.
On the plus side, the content remains. However, I can no longer add new "Forum Post" content and, since the forum module isn't enabled, I can't even create automatic aliases for the "Forum" taxonomy.
Is my only option to run through node_convert, and hope for the best? Or is there a few things I can manually edit in the DB that would give me full ownership of the content type and taxonomy (as if I had created them from scratch and never installed the module in the fist place)?
