Re: Yahoo To PHPBB3 (New Name=Y2B3W7) Released

Mail gateway still works fine and I am using it to bidirectionally sync yahoo groups to multiple boards. The yahoo scraper does not work and there really isnt any free or useful tools out there as yet for collecting old messages due to the NEO crap.

Re: [BETA] phpBB3-Knowledgebase

The current "author" isnt the original and hasnt done much with it. I would recommend that another with some free time or perhaps a group takes this project on. Regardless, it is working fine for me as is. If you want modifications, I recommend rolling them yourself or directing your efforts toward ...

Facebook Group to Forum

I am sure that many of us have seen some chunk of forum activity being lost to Facebook. At the behest of many of my subscribers, I too created a Facebook group for the board. Now I see activity there instead of my board and I see it disappear to the inaccessibility of the Facebook haze instead of s...

Re: [ALPHA] foum-mailing list bridge

In my message above in this thread, the mod that I am using imports messages from a list and does not require existing or even creation of account. It simply posts the message sender name and it will not be linked if a matching account doesnt exist. I suspect that is what you are looking for, ie: im...

Re: Please help on submit_post and post_time

This would take care of it permanently. Seems to me that this should be a default situation for the code anyway so that other scripts will be able to function.

Code: Select all

   if ($data['post_time'] != null) {
      $current_time = $data['post_time'];
   } else   {
      $current_time = time();
   }

Re: [ALPHA] Mail Gateway

...Another tweak I'd like to see is that the script will use the date from the header. I spent more time on this issue and came to realize that grabbing and converting the date to unix time stamp is already in place. An hour of effort to troubleshoot revealed that there was in fact no problem with ...

Re: [ALPHA] Mail Gateway

I am successfully using this to connect a niche forum to a couple of groups. Because I was interested in importing the large archive I already had from using yahoo2mbox, and I didnt want to maintain multiple emails, one for each group, I chose to use the drop-folder capability and a scraper for upda...

Re: Yahoo To PHPBB3 (New Name=Y2B3W7) Released

For those on the hunt, I have built a functioning solution to this using Elric's Mail Gateway . It works out of the box for pop input and smtp output. The script also has capacity to look in maildir folder for import and that's the way I decided to go. I am using grabyahoogroups.pl to scrape new mes...

Re: [ALPHA] foum-mailing list bridge

I have given up on this one myself. And many of us have been waiting for the old mail2forum effort, but if you are reading this, you need to also give up on that. I have had success using Elric's phpbb-mail-gateway with PHPBB 3.0.11 with YahooGroups. It seems to like email in and email out. It also ...

Re: Yahoo To PHPBB3 (New Name=Y2B3W7) Released

Very nice response. Thanks. The Yahoo2Mbox is command line run which allows you to use it in a batch file. I have the scheduler on my 2003 server running the script daily to update all of my archives with recent posts. Once you have gone through the initial hassle of gathering all of the group histo...

Re: Questions about Y2B3W7 operation

Hello. I havent gone through the steps to use your program yet but I have read the help file. I have a few questions for you regarding general usage. In the help file there is a slight reference to using the system in an iterative fashion instead of all at once. What I would like to accomplish is es...

Re: [ALPHA] foum-mailing list bridge

I think a forum account is the only way to go especially in this instance where YahooGroup list needs a subscribing member to email to. I think it could be made to work in such a way where, Group -> Forum, the messages are all posted from the single YahooGroup mailing list ForumId, BUT each post hol...

Re: [ALPHA] foum-mailing list bridge

I am curious how this might do for syncing with a Yahoo group(list) where many members there are not members on the forum and vice versa.

Also, what are your thoughts on this working with phpbb3 on IIS?
