Are there any tools in the pipeline for moving data from ezboard to YABB 2?

I have no clue how EZBoard works... So I haven't put it on the list.  Can you export data from it?

I believe its possible.  Another well known message board has an interesting thread at http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=248654 pointing to a utility they use at http://sourceforge.net/projects/ezboard-conv.  A couple of posts later in the thread they refer to an apparently "fixed" version of the utility above at http://ezboard-conv.sf.net/latest.zip 

I am not sure if this is any help, but if it is something that anyone could work with there might be some mileage in it for the YABB community.

I managed to use that tool to convert from ezboard to phpBB2... I know that you can convert from eblah to yabb, and i found a phpBB to eblah converter so its in theory possible... HOWEVER i'm stuck I can't get the phpBB to eblah converter to work, so looking for an alternative route to get from phpBB2 to YaBB. Any suggestions?

I should have a basic version capable of converting Boards, Categories, Members, and Messages done in a week, but hopefully before that Wink

I look forward to the testing of it, as it could use it.

excellent Cheesy

as all the data on my phpbb2 board is from a scrape of ezboard, it doesnt matter if something goes wrong and deletes it as i can just re do the data scrape... some of the topics are quite large so it should be quite a thorough test
