Could someone tell me where I can get the phpBB to yaBB converter?


I second that request!  Where can Converter.pl be found (for phpbb2 (2.06) to yabb 2.1)?

Right got the converter but when I go to my converter.pl it comes up with an error.

Uriel, if you will let me, I'll include it in the next version of the converter. No promises on when that will come, but I will add a note thanking you for that code. So, what do you say?

Hello:

I decided to create a simple Perl script to correct all the problems generated when importing the phpBB messages to YaBB.

Im attaching the script.

The script is very simple, it opens each message and reformats the message, by making substitutions. The script worked for me, but its very simple and might be unsafe, so if you plan to use it please backup all your data  Tongue


Thanks

Hello:

Now I have another problem. I succesfully imported all the data from my phpBB forum to the new Yabb forum. All the topics, boards and users.

But the messages format is wrong, there are no line breaks, I only see the <br/>, that also happens with the [code] and [quote] blocks.

Is there something I can do about this?


Thanks

If you put the data in the Converted folder, you'll need to move it to the YaBB area using a FTP client.



Thank you  Wink That is exactly what I needed

Hello:

I ran the converter and did all the steps correctly. Then I went to the Admin and ran the Maintenance Controls. But still the data doesn't show at the forum. I looked at the "Converted" directory, and all the data is there.

I don't know if I missed something, because I didn't get any error message or anything.


Thanks
