Re: [SUPPORT] SMF 1.1.1 to phpBB2

One last question,

If I install a mod on phpBB2, and then do another convert, will the mod(s) need to be reinstalled?

Re: [SUPPORT] SMF 1.1.1 to phpBB2

Every time you do a conversion, it is a completely new process. It erases the posts and users in the phpBB2 database before converting. The convertor cannot merge new and old posts in phpBB. Ok, that works for me. As if I redo the conversion, there will be nothing of importance in the phpbb forum. ...

So if I do the conversiona nd continue to use the SMF forum while I makesure all the bugs are worked out of the phpB...

Re: [SUPPORT] SMF 1.1.1 to phpBB2

Just to make sure I got this all. As everyone in this thread seems to have another question. I just want to make sure I got the general idea. I have a forum currently on SMF 1.1.3, switching over to phpBB2. SO... in order to keep all my old users and posts, all I need to do it install phpBB2 and use...
