I hope it all works out. I haven't had a chance all week to work on it, but I have a strong feeling I'll be able to get the portal open by the new year. Once I get the home page coded, the rest should be easy. It's just a matter of putting the right php tags where for Wordpress.
As for the forum, the biggest issue is having the same codes that we have here (eg random avatars, etc) because phpbb has some mods, while smf has others. I may have to do some requesting before we put this 100% through.

Just a note, the site is not, and will not, be compatible with IE6. The highest hits from IE6 over the past year were 23 users, and most days we see zero or one user with it, so I'm not going to stress over making it safe for those users. I have tested the site with IE7 and up, Firefox 3 and up, and Chrome 3 and up, Safari 3 and up, and used both OSX and Windows. I'm pretty sure we'll be safe.
The only remaining step is to develop the skin for Wordpress, and we should be golden. I'll probably clean the code up as I go to make it more friendly, but it's pretty much done!
I'm hoping to get it finished tomorrow, however it should be done, by the latest, at the end of the week.
I cannot promise when the forum will be done though. That will be a bit more difficult to do, plus I need to locate plugins/mods for all the functions we have here, add any missing BBC codes from here, etc.
I can tell you this though. When the move is ready to happen: - You'll know because an e-mail will be sent out - Posting will be disabled on here because I will be transferring posts, however we will not be in maintenance mode. - New passwords will be distributed via PM, as well as more details about the forum.
More info will be coming out as we come closer so, stay tuned!
EDIT: And I just noticed some small imperfections, so I'll get it tip-top for the release!
