Manually convert PhpBB3 to YaBB2.2
Is there any way to manually move posts from PhpBB2 to YaBB2.2?  Like copy/paste from one database to another or something?  My old forum doesn't have a lot of posts so it wouldn't be that time prohibitive to do this (I think) and I really don't want to lose the old posts.

Re: Manually convert PhpBB3 to YaBB2.2
I saw that post but there are no attachments to download and I don't know enough about programming to use the code that's posted.  

Is there any other way?

Re: Manually convert PhpBB3 to YaBB2.2
Oh my.  I made a newbie mistake in typing...  I actually have PhpBB3 that I'm trying to convert to YaBB2.2.

If there isn't a converter for this, what is the best way to manually move the posts?

Not yet for phpBB3, especially since it is still a release candidate... phpBB3 RC8 was released just a few days ago, and as a RC is still subject to coding changes.

You may want to check in the phpBB community for a phpBB3 to phpBB2 (yes, go backwards).  Then you could convert from phpBB2 laterally over to YaBB.

Hope that helps.

Re: Manually convert PhpBB3 to YaBB2.2
Just wanted to update you on the results of this...

There is no converter for PhpBB3 > PhpBB2 so though your solution was innovative it is not workable at this time.

Since there weren't that many posts on the old PhpBB3 forum I just made new boards and manually transferred the posts.  If you want to see how it looks my YaBB2.2 forum is at:

http://forum.savejfc.net

This is for the Save John From Cincinnati Campaign (an HBO original series that ran the summer of 2007 and canceled after 10 episodes).  Our main site is http://www.savejfc.net

Thanks again for your help!
