I am really considering migrating my WP site to IP.Content as long as I am enjoying IP.Board. It would possible great integration.

Current my website has more than 1.000 WP posts with friendly URL.

If I migrate to IP.Content, is there an easy way to write a MOD REWRITE RULE to read http://mywebsite.com...th/friendly-url and report to http://mywebsite.com..._/friendly-url?

Because Wordpress allows you to configure the friendly URLs in many different manners, we do not have a pre-built redirection script like we do for many forum conversions. You can, however, add your own .htaccess rules to redirect the old URLs to the new format of course - but this would be something we do not provide direct support for. I expect it would require you to either

1) Add a rule for each of the old URLs
or
2) Build a PHP script that can act as a gateway, then redirect the old URLs to this script, which can then look up the proper IP.Content article and send you there

#2 would be "easier" but would require PHP knowledge. Someone in the community may be able to assist.

I have some php knowledge, but very poor mod rewrite familiarity.

Another thing: index.php of WP is on root, but WP itself is not.

I know that IP.Content is not going to be on root either, only a index.php.

Is thins going to be a problem?

Making a php redirector for phpbb to IP.Board was easy because old topics have an ID.

Does WP posts also have an ID under any sort of migration table like IP.Board migration?

It is not a problem that they are in different directories, no.

Whether or not your Wordpress URLs have a unique ID in them depends on your current configuration specifically. I believe it is possible for Wordpress posts to retain an ID in the URL, but it is possible that you use a URL configuration that does not include it. I couldn't say from here. IP.Content does retain a unique ID in the URL unless you specify a "static furl name" when adding an article.

The IP.Board convertor create a database that holds the id of old forum topics and the id of the new topic id on IP.Board.

Does the IP.Content convertor do the same thing with worpress posts?

I suspect so, though I'm not very familiar with the converters. You can email sales@invisionpower.com if you would like to confirm. :)
