How to convert SMF 2.1 Beta 1 to phpBB3?

Post by robertmiles » Thu Apr 09, 2015 8:55 am

Is there a way to convert the latest version "SMF 2.1 Beta 1" to the phpBB3? SMF has become a very bad solution, updates and support are very slow, and I want to use phpBB3 now. How to convert "SMF 2.1 Beta 1" to phpBB3? I tried some converters but they do not work. Thanks!

I know nothing about smf , however, that is a beta version so the chance of anyone having already created a convertor for it are slim.

unless that new beta version is a big change from the previous stable release, the current convertors should work ok.

Unfortunately, the current converter is not working. The new version of the SMF has a lot of changes.

Can we expect a new converter? :)

I wonder why you are using a beta version of any software on a live site to begin with.

I would suggest you try to downgrade the smf board to a stable version that does have a convertor.

or, you will have to wait until 2.1 goes final and somebody decides to create a convertor for it .

nobody is going to create a convertor for beta versions of software. it would be a waste of time.

beta versions of software could change completely before they wind up going final and being stable etc.

I tried it and it works fine, with few minor changes.
