There isn't one and I can't say I've seen anyone working on it either.

Why? Did you start a fresh site on phpBB3 or was it a conversion?

Works fine for me. The index is a little slow but that could be the 300k banner image or the stack of ads and counters you have at the bottom of the page.

The bottom line is, there is no 3>2 converter.

This can be done quite easily. I wrote a script which can do this but it is actually in 2 parts, thouhg if anyone needs a conversion phpBB 3 RC or gold > phpBB 2.0.22 I can do that :)
Emma - phpBB forum owner - consider me a "noob" :?

A good friend of mine is looking for phpBB Developers / Gurus for major new phpBB based project - check it out if you're interested! :)

I could really use this bad. Got a site I'd like to revert back to 2.0.22. Going back is easy, as we have a backup from 12/21, however we'd lose any post since then. I'd much rather convert the current 3.0 db back to 2.0.22 if possible :|

Emma, I don't suppose you're willing to share your convertor :)

or if anyone has a convertor to go from 3.0 to 2.0.22 please contact me on AIM or post here. My AIM is Xmiah. Thanks.

It would be great if I could convert back to phpbb2 2.0.22 from phpbb3 3.0.0 as I'm having all sorts of sessions/cookie problems which are stopping me using the ACP. I've tried various suggestions but nothing works - if I can get back to v2 I can either keep it running like that until a solution for my problem is available or convert to other forum software if it can't be fixed.

Please share your script if you can :D

I wrote a small script that might be helpful to people here. It's not perfect, I spent like 30 minutes writing that, hehe. You can read more about it here: http://www.arvystate.net/e107_plugins/c ... content.30

I tried using this. I was able to add the information I need and it did do the conversion but only did the 1 post repeatedly. Welcome to phpbb 2.

So I moved the folder for the conversion to the phpbb 2 forum that I had created. I was able to fill in all the information, then it also gave me drop down boxes to choose from for the post and all. Still did the Welcome to phpbb 2.

After 3.5 months of using the phpbb 3 with portal, members tell me how they miss the Nuke Platinum over the phpbb 3 portal. I have few new members which I can add my self but several hundreds of post I need to convert to the phpbb 2.

Has someone tried this and can you give me on how you did it. Which folder to place the converter files and such. Thanks

I'm searching for a converter from phpBB3.x to phpBB2.0.23, so I can upgrade my board to Categories hierarchy 2.1.6h. Can anyone recommend something?

Cheers,
BN
