I have not come across a convertor for that software before.

If you can provide some information about it someone might be able to help you.

This would be extremely helpful for me as well. I have about 150 members on a PHP-Fusion 5.1 site and I'm intending to move over to a combination phpBB / Subdreamer setup.

I'd really appreciate any leads on how to do this. Let me know what kind of info would be needed and I could pass it on.

Thanks.

I notice that the PHP-Fusion forum is not availablae for download right now. I would need a copy of the database structure or a complete database backup of a live forum would be better.

I would ony be able to help to convert to a basic phpBB forum. For the Subdreamer part, you would be on your own.

:D Wow! Thanks. That would be a huge help. I can send a backup of the live db by email if you like.

I am not sure. I did find a hack which prevents users from accessing the forums until their email address is updated. Maybe something like that would work for you?

Can the admins see the Administration Panel link at the bottom of the Index Page? If not, check the user_level in the phpbb_users table. If the link can be seen, there is something wrong with the configuration settings ofyour board.
