Converting BbBoy to YaBB?
I looked around and didn't see a topic for it, so I figured I'd ask.

My message board is currently experiencing a ton of problems with the BbBoy system. We've had it, and want to leave. The problem we're running into is that just about every forum package we've found so far doesn't convert, and we don't want to lose history.

Is there any chance YaBB has a converter for BbBoy (aka Best Boards or BbBoard)?

Thanks for any assistance.

Re: Converting BbBoy to YaBB?
I don't believe such a converter exists.  Unfortunately, I know absolutely nothing about bbboy (or bbboards, as they seem to be called).  From the little bit of research I've been able to do, it looks like it is actually a hosted board.  Is that accurate?

If so, it will be extremely difficult to write a converter (not impossible, but much more difficult, as we would have no direct access to any of the source files).
 
You should always perform a complete back-up before making any changes or modifications to your forums.
