Thanks for the quick response. We have one password protected board, but I'm just going to take the password off for the conversion. Also, do all the fora have to be visible only to the admin during the script running? For instance, we have fora that only moderators can see, some only admins can see, et cetera. If I put the admin login and password in settings.py and that user can see EVERYTHING, is that enough for the script to run properly? OR, do I have to go in and make all the fora visible to everyone (including guests, non-mods, non-admins, et cetera)?
Thanks so much for helping me. I just don't have much experience with python (my expertise is in PHP, BASH, and C) so I want to be sure of how the python script will react to my assumptions.
