Problems with conversion IPB 1.3 ---> phpBB2

Post by parachut3s » Thu Aug 07, 2008 11:19 pm

I'm converting my forum from IPB 1.3 to phpBB2 (and after to phpBB3) but I've some problems.

I'm using the ipb2phpbb convert, that is good but it don't works completely. This is a list of the problems that I have:


1. It don't convert the polls

2. à è ì ò ù = ? ? ? ? ? (how can I convert correctly the letters?)

3. It don't convert username with '

4. bbcode in signatures don't works


Could anyone help me?

I need some help.

Thank you.

(sorry for my rusty english)

This is not caused by the convertor. It is caused when you export and import the backup file and the proper encoding is not used. Generally, the backup file needs to be in utf8 and the import program needs to be set to utf8.

The other problems I know about and to be honest, I had no intention of fixing them, but I guess there is still a need for this so I will see about fixing them in the next few days.
Have you hugged someone today?
