------------------------

this is okie ! your phpbb3 board will be worked directly with multiple description, when you convert from phpbb2 to phpbb3 ( if your phpbb2 board has installed Topic Description from Morpheus2matrix)
-------------------------

the sql line of phpbb2 MOD:topicdescription by Morpheus2matrix is a portion of SQL default table prefix (phpbb_topics) .then you haven´t to fear to lose topic description , if you convert default prefix table phpbb_topics with .

Ich have also one question : which convert tool do you use ??? , whenit is possible , can you give me the link , maybe i will test it
i have done the two steps ( add the sql and modify files phpBB2) that you say, after i have install a forum test phpBB3 gold and i have added the sql of your mod:

Code: Select all

ALTER TABLE phpbb_topics ADD topic_description VARCHAR( 255 ) NOT NULL DEFAULT '';
ALTER TABLE phpbb_drafts ADD draft_description varchar(100) NOT NULL default '';
ALTER TABLE phpbb_posts ADD post_description VARCHAR( 100 ) NOT NULL DEFAULT '';
ALTER TABLE phpbb_privmsgs ADD message_description varchar(100) NOT NULL default '';
after i have converted the forum phpBB2 to phpBB3 gold but the portion in DB topic_description have not any date... :(

i use mysql4, i supposed that i should edit any file of install folder to export the dates? can you (or other person) help me?

To keep phpBB2 Topic Descriptions when you convert to phpBB3:
  1. Add Multiple Descriptions 0.3.2 to 0.3.3 phpBB3 before you convert
  2. OPEN install/convertors/convert_phpbb20.php
  3. FIND

    Code: Select all

    array('topic_title',			'topics.topic_title',				'phpbb_set_encoding'),
  4. AFTER, ADD

    Code: Select all

    array('topic_description',			'topics.topic_desc',				'phpbb_set_encoding'),
    If you did the change suggested above by dzodzuyengood,

    Code: Select all

    ALTER TABLE `phpbb_topics` CHANGE `topic_desc` `topic_description` VARCHAR( 255 ) CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'default'
    you will have to add instead

    Code: Select all

    array('topic_description',			'topics.topic_description',				'phpbb_set_encoding'),
Now the Topic Descriptions will be carried over from phpBB2 to phpBB3.

The typical answer is always "as soon as possible"
I suppose that is not easy, we should be patiences.

I think there shouldn't be this wide space between the topic title and the discription,, what do you see???
or was it fixed before?

I this the space exists between the discription and the sentence "by User on date"
