proboards conversion?

Is there any easy/not too difficult way for me to move some of the threads from my remotely hosted proboards forum to the new YaBB I just installed for my website, or is there nothing I can really do to simply the process, short of reposting everything again? Thanks.

Proboards probably will not give you access to your forum's data.  That being said, a PHP script would have to be written to convert proboards, and it would have to "crawl" the website and extract the data from the HTML of the web pages like Andy's Yahoo Groups converter he's working on does. Not easy....

Anyways with no ftp access, and non YaBB software would be kinda tough, PBv3 was YaBB Gold SP 1.3something, but Patrick claims he wrote the software from the ground up, but still not sure about it, it still has some very YaBBish charteristics to it... Grin
