Re: Convert MSN Group

nneonneo

I just wanted to say thank you for all the work you did on this, the only thing not converted ok is tables, but I expected that, it's always been the way. You did an excellent job on this and your dedication to making it work so well is so appreciated.

Re: Convert MSN Group

I'm happy to hear that there is a new version coming, I'm anxiously waiting! And thanks for doing the work. I'm determined to get everything transferred that this one person wants that if I have to do it manually I will. The site certainly won't look like MSN Groups but one should be thankful for th...

Re: Convert MSN Group

Nothing else besides the members and boards is converted. This is because: For lists (including the Calendar and Links), I can't figure out what they should be converted to in phpBB. Should each item be a single post, or should the whole list be a post, or should I convert it to some list modificat...

Re: Convert MSN Group

There is a way to contact all users but if I remember correctly it is only the management that can do so. I've tried using the crawler and it doesn't create a member list at all, many errors must be fixed before the sql importing can be done. Then another problem I found was because in MSN Groups al...

Re: Convert MSN Group

I think part of Dicky being very busy is trying to sort out the MSN Groups situation before it all shuts down. There isn't a whole lot of time left to get these groups into a phpbb platform. The most important aspects of conversion are the forums, memberlist and list pages.

Re: Convert MSN Group

If I were you I'd get in touch with Dicky to see what is happening, but if he isn't doing anything I can assure you a convertor for the other parts of MSN Groups is needed for at least two groups that I am wanting to move over for some MSN Groupies.

Re: Convert MSN Group

I'm assuming Dicky is looking at this converter and we'll hear something very soon on it. I'm interested in it to convert a few different MSN Groups over to my site.

Put this in one of your posts: [flash=HEIGHT,WIDTH]URL to the Flash work here[/flash] Make sure you've enabled Flash to be displayed via User Control Panel -> Preferences -> Viewing posts -> Display Flash animations, as well as the Admin Control Panel. As I said before the proper syntax is [flash=w...

HTML was also controlled with permissions and still is for those of us who refused to remove the code from our forums. If you allow html for only trusted members then where's the security threat? Are you going to check every single flash that is implemented to make sure there is no threat in it? Or ...

Is this the answer? To try and force people to use something they don't want to touch? What's Firefox's percentage against IE at the moment? No matter what it is the higher percentage of users use IE and for good reason!

The elimination of ability to use html is a huge downgrade and the fact that flash is enabled and html disabled makes me laugh since flash can be a dangerous tool of it's own.

LOL Carol, can't remember how long I had to wait for the backup 2 years ago but I am sure it was over that 7 day period, and you are right, you ain't gonna ask for your money back because you want the backup so bad. Worse is in that time period your members are still posting to your site and you are...
