It is... if you're willing to parse the output(the HTML) of every page...

You would have to create a script that log ons as a user that can access every page of your board, then go to that each page and parse everything, then insert it to the database. I don't recommend doing that, though, because that would take a tremendous amount of time for someone to create that kind of script. If your board's pretty small, then you might just want to start all over.

....or ask everyone to post their messages again!!

Sorry :twisted: I just had to come with a lame joke. I forgot to go to bed (06:05), working on the norwegian translation. I'm starting to get tired

To your question,
I dont think there is a realistic way of doing that

I recently wrote a script to upgrade my EZboard to 1.4.4 and the new board has been running fine for a few weeks now :D

The script is in no format to distribute, but I am going to be tidying it up and making it into an EZboard --> phpBBv2.0 convertor when I get time.

Theoden: your board is just starting, why not set up phpBBv1.4.4 for a few weeks (months?) until phpBBv2.0 is ready for release. Or you could even set up v2.0-RC1 now (the devs are going to shoot me for suggesting that :lol)


NOTE: ok, v2.0 should not be used in a live environment.

Ezboard

What can I say on ezboard?

:twisted: :twisted:
Well I can say allot!
Most of it I cannot post here.

But to give you an idea of what I think of ezboard.
This is what I well type here and this to me still sound like I am being nice about ezboard

Ezboard it the most **** I ever seen in my life!!!!!! For a host doing free forum's
If you do not pay for you forum you don’t get a 2nd class service
O no you get a 70th class service

You get popup’s AS you typing your post!
Not jest 1 popup, not jest 2 popup’s, not jest 3, not jest 4, but I have had 10 popup’s as I was typing 1 small post!!!!!!!!!

It is Slow, very, very slow.

Ezboard is **** ad happy ……
And I have seen some of the forum's that pay it still **** and them are still ad happy!

And on top of that!
This is no way not even if you copying to a 2nd Ezboard forum to copy post’s
But for the way said in this Topic and that is a bad, bad way to copy the posts in to a new forum!

And let me jest add this I still think what I said in this post was being nice about ezboard!

Now lets look at phpBB v1.4.x
No even v1.2.x is better than Ezboard.

And phpBB v2.0 kick’s the living **** out of Ezboard
:twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

well that what i think of Ezboard.
