IPB Converter

RE: IPB Converter
The_Altered1, you need the DB structure of both forums, one for the original, and mybb ones for what you want to convert to. You then have to have to write a script to convert every little details from posts (format, font face etc), polls (who, how many etc), threads (hot, sitcky, new etc), and heaps more as far as I know.

Its a big job, but I do believe Lobster, once done with phpbb2mybb converter, might be able to do this one. Someone should ask him. He seems to have done a great job on phpbb2mybb so far (although hes running late on the next release Smile )

Weblord, cool, do you have a screenshot perhaps??

RE: IPB Converter
You would need a DB Structure of IPB... Something i dont have, I'd make one but i just dont have the time.. And this forum i think will be the next IPB... It's VERY good and has alot of the features IPB & VBulletin has... Very good board.. But the Converter is needed... If theres one for phpBB then all i need is one for that, Then you can convert your IPB to phpBB then phpBB to MyBB

yeah, but I would imagine you might loose some data using that process

RE: IPB Converter
well, some parts will be lost along the way,

eg: If IPB has a feature myBB has but phpBB doesn't.

Which means in coverting to phpBB, the feature will be removed. See what I mean??

RE: IPB Converter
Indeed. However if it's only important to you that the majority of the content (i.e. the posts, members, forum structure) is migrated then a 2-step conversion isn't the end of the world if you would prefer to convert now than later. Not that i would have a biased opinion on the subject Toungue The phpbb>mybb converter is there if you want it, at http://www.mybboard.com/community/showth...332&page=4
Speaking of which, a final alpha stage IS almost there now, honest!

Not likely, I'm afraid. I think Chris said that he would be making a converter based on the api he's writing, so one will come. I don't have connections with IPB like I do phpBB, and have another exciting project I want to do when I'm done. As per myBB 3rd-party stuff, I was toying with the idea of a generic mod installer, which would be more useful in my opinion. However present me with a petition of 50 signatories and my view might change Wink

for($i=1;$i<=8;$i++)
{
$j = ($i < 4 || ($i > 4 && $i < 8)) ? $i . ' potato, ' : (($i == 8) ? 'more.' : '4, ');
echo $j;
}

RE: IPB Converter
Uhh... he did not say his was 19gb Rolleyes Fox did and Cory questioned that Toungue Anyways, the last post in this thread before yours was almost 5 months ago. MyBB Gold has taken precedence over any conversion scripts.
