PhpBB => MyBB merger. No BBCode conversion - Marvin - 2019-09-16

Greetings.
Trying to convert phpBB forum on intranet to MyBB.
phpBB ver 3.2.3
MyBB 1.8.20

Using Merger 1.8.11

Threads and posts were imported but BBCodes were imported with substitution of "[]" by "<>". So instead of 
[url="http://some.address"]Link here[/url]
I've got
<URL url="http://some.address">Link here</URL><br/>

Every post now has "<r>" in the beginning and "</r>" in the end.
Every new line is ended with "<br/>

What is the solution for this?

I haven't used phpBB for years. I reply only by guess.

Looks like your phpBB allows HTML use or is using some other XML-like parser/editor, but current Merge's phpBB3 converter only parses and converts plain bbcode.

Might be a problem because of:

Extension Name: Advanced BBCode BoxHuh

Should I deactivate all extensions and try import sll over again?

No it's useless since the data already have that kind of formatted contents. If you can confirm the content of posts/PMs are not encoded in a normal phpBB way, a custom parser for Merge should be able to deal with that.

However, as I've said, I'm not sure if phpBB supports that kind of formats natively. The Merge's module may be out-dated as well.

So, no solution then?
I'm stuck with phpBB?
Or am I to have lots of fun with find&replace in MySQL?
