have you had a chance yet to resolve this is issue?
In the last few days I've converted our 150 000+ posts snitz forum to phpbb v2, using your conversion script.
In phpbbv2 everything looked fine, and i then decided to continue conversion to phpbb v3, after which i got the 'author' problem as mentioned above.
Other issues that i noticed:
- the 'Last post' date in the viewforum.php page displays incorrectly, it displays the datetime of the first post. Therefore, topics are in fact sorted on the day they were created and not on the last post date. I tried resyncing twice, but it didn't help. This seems to be a more problematic issue than the author problem
- Collation problem. Altough both the phpbbv2 and the phpbbv3 databases have the same database collation, and in phpbbv2, having run the conversion from snitz, everything looked fine, in phpbbv3 there seems to be a few issues with é, à etc. I actually can live with this, but if anyone knows i fix it would be apprciated.
- quotes are messed up in phpbbv3. I'll try to post an example below.
Anyway, thanks a ton already for the excellent convertor to phpbb2 !
